“This is a great addition to the Hesston program for so many reasons,” Sharp said. “Erin will inject a tremendous amount of talent on the field and on campus. As a legacy student, I couldn’t be happier that she chose to start at Hesston College. Erin is a big piece of the puzzle for our team, and I look forward to watching her work.”
