El Paso, TX — Mickey Courtney is heading back to his roots. The Hattiesburg, Mississippi native helped lead Coronado to a district football title, and today he signed to play Quarterback at Birmingham Southern, a division III school in Birmingham, Alabama.
Courtney completed 63% of his passing for the Thunderbirds in 2013, throwing for 1,814 yards and 18 touchdowns, while also rushing for 134 yards and one touchdown.
"Their program is just stellar, they have a great pre-med program which I plan on going in to. The football program there is great, the head coach, the facilities are awesome. I really like the head coach and the offense is a nice uptempo high octane offense," said Courtney.
