“She got to be an excellent player for us,“ coach Jordan said. “She has wonderful speed. She is very clever and she has good touches. She is a very good player. I think she will do fine at the next level.”

At the next level, Colvin will join a Lady Choctaw team who went 13-6-1 last season and advanced to the NCCAA Mid East Regional Tournament.

The Lady Choctaw’s soccer head coach is Darryl Longabaugh. He has coached at Mississippi College for 17 years and recorded his 200th win last season.

Already wearing Mississippi College gear, Colvin tearfully thanked her parents and various supporters, then signed her name. Afterwards, she was all smiles and ready to look ahead.

“It has definitely been a stressful process,“ Colvin said. “But now that it is over and I am officially signed, I am ready to start the next chapter of my soccer career.”

“I am just looking forward to getting to play the game that I love. That is really all that I could have hoped for.”
