Editor's Note
Bobby Hutchinson appears to be set to sign with the Tigers in February and is ready to go with his grades. He is still one point short on the ACT and is working hard to get his score up. Hutchinson is scheduled to take the test two more times in the next few weeks.

Just in case however, there have already been talks with Dodge City Community College should, for some reason, it not happen. Nevertheless, Hutchinson remains extremely confident that he will get the necessary score and has been working hard after school to get the job done.
