Dragons News · Radford signs with Drury Panthers Track and Field


On Friday, February 12th Wyatt Radford signed his letter of intent to continue his academic and athletic career at Drury University.  As a Panther, Wyatt will study Biology and Health Science (Pre-Optometry) and will compete in track and field.  As a student-athlete at De Soto High School Wyatt has been very involved with many different extracurricular activities.  Other activities include: National Honor Society, Student Council, Spirit Club, Associate of Arts Program, and the A+ Program.  Despite missing track and field due to the coronavirus during his junior year, Wyatt is poised for a great senior season and looks to get back to the MSHSAA state track meet in multiple events at the end of May.  When asked to about his experience as a student-athlete at De Soto High School, Wyatt said, “My favorite part of being a student-athlete would be the bonds that were built…  The other athletes and coaches that I have been with became big influences on me as a person and I will definitely miss that…  They gave me a great experience”.   As Wyatt looks forward to the next chapter in his college career he is “looking forward to the the freedom” and what he is able to do at the next level.  The Activities Department at De Soto High School would like to thank Wyatt for his dedication to our school these past four years and congratulate him on achieving this goal.  We at DHS are incredibly proud of Wyatt and are excited to see all of the wonderful things he will continue to accomplish in life.
