Life of Harley Earl


This archived article was written by: Rachel Scoggins

Harley Earl is a 5 foot, 5 inch shooting guard for USU Eastern. She is from Corinne, Utah, a small town in Northern Utah located near the banks of Bear River. It is about 10 miles west of Brigham City. It is a three-hour drive from Price to Corinne,
Earl attended Box Elder High School and graduated in a class of 400 students. In high school she played basketball and participated in track where she threw the javelin.
Earl has a younger brother, Landon, who is 10. He was adopted when she was nine and she absolutely, without a doubt adores him. He plays basketball, football, baseball and the drums. Her parents are Colby and Stacie Earl. They travel everywhere for their self-employed business of building playhouses and photography.
She loves USU Eastern because of how it’s a small town and it has that small town feel.  She feels that coming to Price and attending USU Eastern was a good choice as a freshman because the classrooms are small and the teachers are willing to help you with any questions you have.
Playing on the women’s basketball team she has met new friends who are now some of her best BFFs and helped her adjust to the new lifestyle.
“Playing basketball my freshmen year also helped me to transition to college life.” Most of us know that our freshmen year of college is the scariest and the most beneficial time of our lives. It is where we learn what we need for future careers and it is where we are able to make friendships that will last.
Now a sophomore, she is involved with student government where she is the diversity representative. “Being in student government has helped me to be more involved with the school and the students.”  The best part she says about being involved in student government is that she is able to meet new students and work with them. She also feels that being in student government is like having a job, everyday she is helping and planning new events for the college students.
She is also playing basketball again this year. She loves the girls on the team and the opportunity she has to play
basketball on a college level.
She feels that the games the team has played so far have been interesting and fun.  Also with this new season, many games will be played out of the state of Utah, which means that there will be a lot of hours spent on the road traveling. “The bus trips will be long, but hopefully fun and not too boring.”
