Hursey Signs With Taylor University
May 6, 2014By Tom Schermerhorn of West Noble High School
West Noble senior Adam Hursey will look to continue his academic and athletic career next fall at Taylor University in Upland, IN. Hursey started out a little reluctant to attend Taylor since both of his parents and a sister have studied at Taylor, but after meeting the people at Taylor and learning more about the Christian-based environment Adam quickly was sold on attending this fall. Adam said, “I thought I wanted to go someplace different to school than others in my family, but after visiting I just felt like this is where God wanted me to be.” At this time Adam is not sure what he is planning to study, although Business, Exercise Science and Ministerial Studies have all interested him at one point or another.
Hursey was a 6’5” 285lb Offensive Lineman for Coach Monte Mawhorter’s West Noble Charger team and was voted All NECC the past two seasons. Mawhorter is not looking forward to replacing the massive lineman, but he is excited about the future for Hursey. “Adam not only has come a long ways physically while here at West Noble, but he has grown so much as a person and leader. Taylor is getting a great kid with tremendous upside physically. I am very happy for Adam and his family.”
Taylor University coach Ron Korfmacher is in his 6th season after serving as an assistant for many years is also excited about Hursey attending the NAIA school in Upland. “Adam fits our school and team perfectly. He has a great lineman frame and will continue to get stronger with year around strength and conditioning. We believe his character will also be a great match for our faith based school.”
Taylor competes in the Mid States Football League against Concordia, Robert Morris, Siena Heights, Marian, St. Francis(IN) and St. Francis(IL). Adam is the son of Guy and Tammie Hursey. Congratulations Adam!
