Bowie's Betts Signs with Austin College

Bowie running back Payton Betts signed a Letter of Intent Wednesday morning to play football at Austin College.

Betts ran the ball 200 times, gaining 1,174 yards and scoring 15 touchdowns as a senior for the Jackrabbits, who shared the District 6-3A title with Burkburnett and Graham.

He also caught six passes for 81 yards during the season.

He expects to play running back for the Kangaroos, and possibly play this season after the team installed a new, run-heavy offense this spring.
