“I won’t be there next year, but I like football and still wanted to help the program,” Bell said.

Bell is the son of Amy and Mike Bell. He graduated from Maxwell High School on June 1.
For the win, and in addition to the $1,000 for his chosen high school program, Bell also earned a $500 scholarship for college.
