Bangs’ Powell plans to play college soccer at UMHB

Brownwood Bulletin

Former Bangs running back and safety Guy Powell announced Tuesday that he plans to continue his football career at the collegiate level with Mary Hardin-Baylor.

“After many conversations and a lot of time to think and go over options, I have decided to continue my athletic career at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor,” Powell wrote on social media Tuesday.

Powell was selected as Co-Offensive MVP on the 2022 All-District 5-2A Division I football team after rushing for 2,040 yards and 25 touchdowns. The 5-foot-8, 175-pound Powell was also voted first-team all-district defensive back after making 130 tackles last season.

Powell helped the Dragons to a 7-5 record and a Class 2A Division I bidistrict championship last season.

“He got us going on offense,” said Kyle Maxfield, Bang’s head football coach through last season. “But he was just as valuable to us on defense. He saved as many touchdowns at safety as he scored at running back.”

Powell also helped the Dragons to the second round of the Class 3A DII playoffs in 2020.

Mary Hardin-Baylor is a perennial NCAA Division III national soccer power in Belton. The Cru has won several national championships, with the latest coming in 2021.
