After directing the prolific Parish Episcopal offense for the past two seasons, Jeremy Hodge is moving on to the college level.
The dual-threat quarterback signed a letter of intent on Wednesday to play at New Mexico State. The Aggies will play in the Sun Belt Conference next season before becoming a Football Bowl Subdivision independent in the 2018 season.
Hodge, who transferred from Plano West prior to his junior year, passed for almost 3,000 yards and 29 touchdowns this season for the Panthers, who finished 7-5 and lost in the second round of the TAPPS playoffs. He also led Parish in rushing with 1,218 yards and 25 scores.
One of Hodge’s top offensive linemen also signed an FBS scholarship on Wednesday, as 300-pound tackle Gray Davis inked a scholarship offer with Nevada, which is in the Mountain West Conference.
