Siblings and Foley HS alumni Keldrick and Shawnessy Edwards took time from their fall breaks at Mississippi State University and the University of Mobile to speak to members of the Foley track & field team. Keldrick was an all-state performer at FHS; he was a state medalist; he was a team captain who set school records. He first went to the University of Mobile where he earned NAIA All-American status; he then chose to transfer to Mississippi State to challenge himself further athletically and earned 2nd team All-American at the NCAA level.
Shawnessy was also all-state during her time as a Foley Lion; she was also a team captain who set school records. She has excelled at the University of Mobile as a track & field athlete and has been all-conference for the Rams.
Both alumni stressed academics, personal health, nutrition, and a winning mindset to the current Foley track & field athletes. Foley HS Track & Field appreciates Keldrick’s and Shawnessy’s willingness to take time to speak to the next generation of Lions and also thanks them for their numerous contributions to Foley HS during their time as students here.
