Taylor senior track star Dushon Orr verbally committed to Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches, TX on Saturday, September 21.

“I went for a tour and really liked their facilities and was really impressed by the whole experience. It was very welcoming,” Orr said in an interview Tuesday afternoon.

In his upcoming Senior year Orr has hopes of getting his times down in the 200m and 100m along with improvements in the other areas he already excels at such as the Long Jump, 400m and 4x200.

Upon arrival at Stephen F Austin Orr has plans of majoring in Kinesiology. Orr concluded the interview Tuesday with three words, “Axe ‘Em Jax,” the slogan for Stephen F. Austin athletics.

Orr and his “Twin” fellow Duck track star Tanner Welch are already preparing for the upcoming season with distance conditioning.
