Natrona County Senior Darian Hurst committed to play football for Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana. Hurst helped bring the Mustangs a 4A state title this past season. Along with his football scholarship, he also received a dean scholarship for his academic progress. He will be pursuing a career in aviation. And while the Mustang senior was also looking at options of playing baseball in college, Rocky Mountain gave him the best opportunities.
"I was kind of hesitant on it at first, but seeing the opportunity come my way, I think it's an opportunity that shouldn't be surpassed. It's very rare for students to receive something like this and be able to flourish with it, so I figured I better take advantage of the opportunity I was given and make the best of it," said Hurst.
