D’Iberville’s Tyler Barnes uses Special Pen to Sign with USM
Now Southern Miss wasn’t done scooping up signatures from players on the Gulf Coast. The first one of them all was actually D’Iberville’s Tyler Barnes.
He paces a trio of Warriors that signed to play football at the next level. His signing day story is actually more interesting than most. Determined to make today about more than just pen and paper, his mom stepped in and made sure her son had the ultimate writing utensil for his big day, old school USM logo and all. “My mom, she talked to me this morning about the pen and she was wondering do I want a special pen. She took it to Church this morning and blessed the pen, so when I signed it was like I’m blessing my life away. So I’m signing this paper for like the four years, but I’m really signing for like the next 40 years cause this is for football but it’s also for like a future job,” said Barnes.
Other D’Iberville signees were DJ Polk with MGCCC and Chris Thompson with Southeastern in Florida.
