With a stellar 4.9 GPA, Kadur has always stood out as one of the smartest kids in Sumter County. However, what truly sets him apart is his exceptional talent on the football field. As a key player for the South Sumter Raiders, Kadur’s presence on defense was formidable. Throughout the season, he recorded an impressive 55 tackles, showcasing his prowess as a defensive anchor. But it was his 11 sacks and knack for causing and recovering fumbles that truly highlighted his impact on the field.

Despite his busy schedule balancing academics and athletics, Kadur also found time to excel in other sports. He’s a vital member of the weightlifting team, where he’s having a standout season. Kadur’s athletic achievements didn’t go unnoticed, as he was nominated for the prestigious Scott Brantley trophy, a testament to his all-around athletic abilities but also to his work off the field as well.

However, Kadur’s journey doesn’t end with high school. In a momentous decision, he chose to further his academic and athletic pursuits at Carnegie Mellon University, known for its top-tier academic programs. While there, Kadur will continue to pursue excellence both on the football field and in the classroom, embodying the true spirit of a student-athlete.

But Kadur wasn’t the only athlete making waves on signing day. Chaselyn Walton, a talented volleyball player, also signed her commitment letter to Emmanuel University. As she embarks on her collegiate volleyball career, the Walton family celebrates another milestone in their athletic journey.

Congratulations to Ty Kadur and Chaselyn Walton, two shining stars from South Sumter County, as they take the next step towards greatness in their respective sports and academic endeavors.
