Gossett Signs with Crowley's Ridge College
With commencement exercises now just weeks away, the future of one soon-to-be graduate of Piggott High School was laid out Tuesday morning, as multi-sport Mohawk standout Trey Gossett inked a letter of intent to continue his education and play baseball at Crowley's Ridge College. The signing ceremony was held in the PHS library with family, coaches, friends and teammates in attendance.
Gossett, the son of Mistie and Daniel Gossett, has left his mark at Piggott High School as both an athlete and a leader in the classroom. His play for the baseball Mohawks has earned him postseason honors the past three years, and he is likely to be recognized again this spring for his performance on the diamond. He was also a three year starter at quarterback for the football Mohawks, helping guide the Tribe to over 20 wins, as he currently stands as the third most productive QB in program history behind only Jimmy Johnson and Gary Adams. He was also a regular on defense and special teams, and helped the squad to playoff appearances all three years and several historic wins.
“I just want to tell you guys what a great young man you're getting, you're getting a really good person,” Mohawk Coach Michael Harrell offered at the ceremony.
Gossett was also a standout on the basketball court throughout his high school years, and as a member of the PHS golf team.
In addition to his parents, he was joined by his sister, Elise; grandparents Dan and Connie Gossett and Dale and Geraldine Crawford; CRC coaches Brenden Camp and Tray Malone and Mohawk coaches Alan Rabjohn, Billy Joe Seal and Shawn Hearn.
