National Signing Day: FRA- Irby and Marberry

Williamson County Football

By: Amber Pennycuff

National Signing Day is upon us, FRA has some talented athletes leading the way.


Franklin Road Academy’s Joe Irby is getting some attention this week.  The OL is signing with Murray State.

Previously, there had been talk about Irby committing to Western Kentucky University for his next step, but the Nashville-native de-committed and decided to go with Murray State.

The all-star had many offers from different schools and will be among the historic top-talent to advance from FRA.


 Irby’s classmate Rob Marberry has decided to sign with Western Kentucky for basketball.  This 6-foot-7 commit chose the Hilltoppers over schools like MTSU and Belmont.  WKU is currently 15-7 and 2nd in the Sun Belt Conference, behind Georgia State.

Looking at WKU’s current roster, Marberry would be among the top five tallest on the team.  Needless to say, he will be an asset to this basketball program.

The Williamson Source will keep you updated throughout National Signing Day on all of the Williamson County athletes.
