Batavia’s Ison signs with Morehead State to continue his educational and football careers

Josh Ison, Batavia High School senior, has signed a letter-of-intent to further his education and athletic career at Morehead (Ky.) State University.

Ison was a Southern Buckeye Conference National Division and all-city all-star in football and wrestling. He was a district qualifier in wrestling. He was a three-year letterman on the gridiron and mat and a four-year letterman in track and field. He was awarded Batavia High School’s prestigious John Boggs Award for his character, leadership, and dedication both in and out of athletic competition. The football team captain was awarded this year as the Bulldogs’ most valuable player and earned the Ironman Award.

In addition to sports participation he is a member of the National Honor Society, Energy Leaders group, and a senior mentor.

At Morehead he plans to major in veterinary science.

“When I visited Morehead I liked it there. It felt like home,” Ison said. “The coaches were really nice and winning is expected there.”
