Harrells Christian Academy senior Kelly Nelms signed his letter of intent to play football at Furman University on Monday Feb. 17.


Nelms knew he wanted to play football at the next level throughout his career as a Crusader. He played football at Harrells for six years, beginning in seventh grade. The HCA all-purpose back rushed for 1,379 yards on 144 carries as a senior and scored 17 touchdowns in a superb Crusader rushing attack that ranked sixth in the state in total rushing yards. Nelms did not only find a way to make an impact on offense but also contributed to the Crusaders success on defense and special teams. He finished the season with 2,079 all purpose yards on the season and found the end zone 23 times.


Nelms helped his team reach the state championship game as a senior at Harrells. He was named to the all conference and all state team as a senior. Nelms not only succeeded on the football field but also in classroom. He is a member of Beta Club and challenges himself with multiple honors and A.P. classes. Nelms hopes to carry his success to Furman and excel as a student athlete as a Paladin.
