When he picked off a pass in the fourth quarter and returned it for a touchdown to give his team the lead and eventual win over Southwest last October, East Central senior Moses Rymers celebrated one of the greatest games of his career. It was a special night for many reasons, and for the Hornets, it was a win that led to a district title. Now, Rymers is celebrating once again, as he accepts an offer to attend school and play football for the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (UMHB) in Belton.

Rymers has earned several honors over the years, and has excelled in the classroom as much as he has on the football field. He is an all-district athlete, was named the Right Guard Player of the Week for his game against Southwest, and has been a member of the gifted and talented program at East Central for years. It is that combination of athletic talent and intellect that has brought Rymers success at East Central, and it is the same combination that will make him a success in college.

While Rymers eventually decided on the UMHB, he did consider Texas Lutheran University, Texas State University, and Texas A&M University-Kingsville. Rymers said he liked the campus in Belton, was impressed with the football program and coaches, and also liked that it was a Christian university. He also believes he will receive an excellent education there.

Rymers’ plan is to major in engineering, but he is also interested in business administration. After signing, Rymers spoke just as much about the academics of UMHB as he did the athletics -- something that came as no surprise to his coaches and teachers.

“Moses is a brainiac,” said Coach Robyn Wunderlich, who had Rymers in one of her classes. “He probably could have taught the class himself.”

“He is a smart young man, and is a really hard worker,” said Head Football Coach Robert Walker. “He deserves this and he will do well up there.”

While Rymers begins to shift his focus from high school to college, he said he knows what he is leaving behind. He said he would miss the “brotherhood” he shared with his teammates during the season, and everyone at East Central. He is looking forward to playing at the next level, though, and of course, for his opportunity to earn a degree.

Rymers gave thanks to everyone who helped him; he thanked God, and he thanked his parents, Gabriel and Virginia, for all they have done.

While Virginia was unable to attend the signing, Gabriel was there.

“I’m proud,” Gabriel said. “He worked hard to accomplish what he did. He is a great kid. I’m just really proud of him.”
