Three Liberty County Athletes Sign College Scholarships Thursday

Posted: Updated:

Three athletes inked college scholarships at Liberty County High School on Thursday. Jessica Read, Jesse Williams, and Dustin Watson will all be attending DIII Huntingdon College next year- Jessica for cheerleading, and Jesse and Dustin for football.

Liberty County athletic director Grant Grantham said all three are great friends, and all of them going to the same school is a huge benefit.

"All of them are good friends and Dustin and Jesse had this opportunity earlier in the year and they were kind of holding out for a few things to see how things shook down," said Grantham Thursday. "For Jessica, this worked out for her last weekend. Al of them just decided to all sign together and that's where they were wanting to go the whole time but everything just kind of worked together last week."

With her signing Thursday, Jessica is the first cheerleader at Liberty County to signed a cheer scholarship.
