"Coach Campbell called me into his office and told me the news. I was pretty upset, but to be truthful, I was more upset at myself than anybody else. I knew I goofed off in the classroom for too long, and it cost me my scholarship at Ole Miss," said a matter of fact, Dion Gales.
What will Dion do next?
"I took my official
visit to Troy State this weekend, and I committed. I like the school. It is close
to my home town, so I decided to make a move over there. I just liked everything
about it. I had been looking at Troy since my first season here, but I was already
committed to Ole Miss. When Ole Miss let me go, I have six of my teammates already
going to Troy, so I said lets make it seven. We are taking the show to Troy."
Gales heard from anymore schools?
"MSU has sent their coaches down
here a couple of times. Coach (Melvin) Smith tried to talk me into coming over
there, but I do not want to go to MSU, I want to go to Troy State. USM has called
me a few times, but like I said, it is final. I am going to Troy. I am not even
taking anymore calls from anymore colleges. Troy State gave me a second opportunity
to further my athletic career, and I am sticking with them."
Dion Gales has a happy ending after all
