Last week, former Troy Trojan – and Brundidge native – Jaidyn Wilson announced that he would be transferring to Edward Waters University to continue his football career.

The EWU Tigers are a Division II program based in Jacksonville, Fla. EWU was Florida’s first Historically Black College or University (HBCU) and is the only HBCU program in Florida that is currently a member of Division II.

Wilson was a star quarterback for Pike County High School before starting his college career at Lakeland University in Wisconsin. He played in six games as a freshman there, completing 11-of-28 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns along with a rushing touchdown.
