HENDERSON, Tenn. - The Freed-Hardeman Lion golf team added another golfer to its 2017-18 recruiting class with the recent signing of Colby Shelton of Hickman County High School.

Shelton concluded his high school career at Hickman County with an appearance in the regional tournament. His high school career saw him as a part of a district championship team that advanced to the regional tournament three of his four years.

Shelton also competed in numerous summer tour events, finishing with two top-five results.

"Colby is a hard worker with tremendous athletic ability," said FHU golf coach Chris Hodges. "He hasn't reached his full potential yet, but his desire to improve will enable him to be a valuable asset to our program. Coach Herron and Gaylon Cude from Tennessee Golf House have done a tremendous job with Colby, which will allow him to be successful at the next level."

Colby is the son of Craig and Misty Shelton of Centerville, Tenn. He joins Dalton Thomasson (East Hickman High School / Lyles, Tenn.) in the 2017-18 recruiting class for the Lion golf program.
