Brothers Sign CIU Athletic Scholarships — Together

August 10, 2017

Brothers Dominik and Braydon Byars were on different paths after high school. But the brothers will be much closer to each other again after signing athletic scholarships the same day at Columbia International University. They’ll even room together.

Their stepfather, Winn Fitzgerald says, “It was like God stepped in for this to happen.”

The Byars brothers played high school sports at Brookland-Cayce High School just outside Columbia. At CIU, Braydon will run cross country and track. Dominik will play soccer.
