Emily Hower Signing Letter of intent for Brewton Parker College Wrestling

Emily Hower Signs with BPC as First Girl Wrestler from Bulldog Program to Head to Next Level

Lyons, GA. – January 11, 2023 | Coach Todd Allen


Emily Hower took the next step in her athletic career signing with the Barons of Brewton Parker on Tuesday. This marks the first girl wrestler for the MatDawgs to move onto the college ranks.

Emily has had a pivotal hand in developing the girl MatDawgs program, wrestling all four years in high school. She also notched her belt as a state qualifier her sophomore year and was close last year, falling one match away in a stacked weight class. She looks to mark the record books again this season as the first girl, MatDawg, to reach the placement podium at the individual State Championships.

“It is great to see our wrestlers move on and continue their athletic careers at the next level. This is even more special being our first girl to do it! Emily is continuing to grow and I have no doubt will continue to make our program proud as she heads to the next level.” says Coach Allen.

Hower was joined by her parents, friends, and teammates on Tuesday during her official signing with Brewton-Parker College. The MatDawgs, coaches, teachers, and community celebrate Emily and look forward to following her career as a BPC Baron in the future.
