Junior pre-med major Justus Edwards became a social-media sensation this fall when he returned to Centre College – site of a serious injury suffered last year – and walked to the very spot on the field where he went down. A video clip shared by Centre was quickly picked up by ESPN, ABC World News Tonight and others, highlighting the courage and determination Edwards’ teammates, coaches and fellow students know so well. Watch the video above for more on his story, courtesy of 11 Alive News in Atlanta.

Edwards’ teammates on the Berry football team continue to draw inspiration from his example, winning a fourth consecutive Southern Athletic Association championship and returning to the NCAA Division III national playoffs for the third straight year. Many players earned individual recognition as a result, led by record-setting wide receiver Mason Kinsey, an All-Region selection who on Jan. 18 will join some of the top performers from all divisions at the prestigious East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Berry volleyball also enjoyed another standout season, winning the SAA Tournament title and advancing to the NCAA playoffs for the third year in a row behind the All-American trio of Carson VanCampen (first team), Laura Beier (third team) and Emily Hancock (honorable mention).

Other fall standouts included Meredith Herman, a national cross-country qualifier for the second consecutive year, and men’s soccer player Jake Williamson, who earned All-Region honors after setting a school record for goals in the NCAA era with 18 for the season and 41 in his career.
