Ballard Huxley Prep Joins Men's Golf Team
Leland has accumulated a perfect 4.0 grade-point average at Ballard of Huxley High School where he earned all-district honors in football as a senior. He caught 24 passes for 373 yards this past fall, including seven touchdowns.
He finished sixth in the 2007 Iowa Class 3A state meet as a freshman, just eight strokes behind current Bulldog Cody Schweinefus, who won the state title.
He finished ninth in the 2009 Iowa Class 3A state golf meet, while placing fifth in 2008.
He also starts for the Ballard-Huxley basketball team.
"Devin is a multi-sport athlete who brings a strong work ethic to Drake along with an exceptional academic resume," said Drake golf coach Scott Bohlender. '"I look forward to having Devin at practice next fall and I am convinced he will improve our program on and off the course."
