Cove receiver commits to Mary Hardin-Baylor


A Fort Hood officer will get to attend his son’s college football games thanks to his decision to stay close to post.

Hunter McVeigh, son of Lt. Col. Keith McVeigh, deputy commander of 4th Sustainment Brigade, 13th Sustainment Command, a slot receiver with Copperas Cove High School, committed to play for the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton.

“We went to a few games and saw the new stadium, met the coaches and I just really liked being there,” Hunter McVeigh said. “The new stadium is amazing and is the best in Division III ... it’s just an enjoyable place to be and I really like the coaches which reminded me of here.”

Keith McVeigh said he was impressed by the athletic department’s rules for player conduct, the camaraderie of the players and the esprit de corps at UMHB which is very similar to the military.
