Barton Peveril Student Receives Scholarship for Louisiana State University, Shreveport
Barton Peveril Sixth Form College student Joshua Batt has been offered a football scholarship at Louisiana State University, Shreveport, a Division 1 College in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) based in Louisiana, United States of America.
The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics is a college athletics association for colleges and universities in North America. Division 1 hosts the most elite athletes and teams within the association.
“We are delighted for Josh”
Joshua Batt, who joined Barton Peveril from Upper Shirley High School, represents the Barton Peveril Elite Football Team and plays club football for Hamble Football Club. Batt earned his place after being selected for an exhibition team under the management of agent Tom Nutter. Footage of Batt was recorded and sent to several United States Universities and the College student was approached by Louisiana State University, Shreveport and six other institutions as a result.
Once Batt completes his studies at Barton Peveril, he intends to major in Exercise Science at the US University. After completing the four year degree, the Centre Back then hopes to pursue a career in football or work in the exercise science field.
Speaking about the student’s success, Barton Peveril Director of Sport, Luke Hampton, said:
“We are delighted for Josh. He is an excellent example of where hard work and dedication can get you. He has been integral to our football programme here at college, has a great attitude and work ethic, so I have no doubt he will be a big success in the States.”
