George Odum is the latest Millington Trojan gridiron star to ink a letter of intent on National Signing Day. The Trojan senior safety signed a scholarship to play football at The University of Central Arkansas. Odum’s journey to becoming a bear started his 10th grade season when he was the second leading tackler on the Trojans behind current University of Memphis player Alan Cross.
Odum used his speed and explosive tackling style to have a All-District junior season. Also that year, he medaled in two events at the Class 3A State Track Meet, in the triple jump and 200m.
This past football season, Odum was all over the field as one of Millington’s leading tacklers. He also scored touchdowns on defense, offense and special teams.
