HAYSI, Va. - The Haysi Tigers made it to the state semifinals this past season.
Early in April the heart and soul of that Tiger's team signed to play college football.
We're talking about senior running back Jeffrey Bowen. He's signing to continue his career with the Carson-Newman Eagles. Bowen started his career at Ervington High School and when it closed after his sophomore year he continued at Haysi and made a huge impact. He finishes with more than 5,000 rushing yards and 38 touchdowns. He was also a big part of their defense.
