MADISON – At Georgetown College in Kentucky, Dustin Haraway plays “‘tiger’ position, strong side outside linebacker.”

As a Bob Jones High School senior in 2013, Dustin was team captain, awarded All-Region honors and named “Player of the Week” twice. A National Honor Society member, he graduated with a 4.0 GPA.

His first year at Georgetown was “rough. I was still fighting a nagging foot injury from high school,” Dustin said. His recuperation required his entire freshman year. “This fall, I’ll be a senior in the classroom and a redshirt junior on field.”

He participates in Kinesiology and Health Studies Club and campus outreach. His brother Dustin, some friends and he founded a Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter. Dustin joined an investment team that manages a $300,000 stock portfolio. “Real money,” he said.

His parents are Steve and Donna Haraway. Steve represents District 2 on Madison County Commission. Donna works as a buyer for Huntsville City Schools. Dustin’s brother Dylan is a Georgetown junior and also plays football.

Then, in region championships against Austin, we were down 13-10 with under two minutes. Trey Bates led a 70-yard drive (for) a 17-13 win. We completed passes to five different guys.”
