Two LHS student-athletes sign letters of intent
Two Lamar High School student-athletes signed letters of intent Wednesday to play collegiate sports next year.
Ashley Williams signed with Spartanburg Methodist College to play basketball, and DeCobie Durant signed with Palmetto Prep Academy to play football.
As a senior, Williams scored 23.3 points per game, while grabbing 14.5 rebounds per game and registering four steals per game. She recorded a career-high 50-point game in her final season, as well.
Over her career, she received numerous accolades, including a S.C. Basketball Coaches Association All-State selection, Region 3-A All-Region selection and was named to the 2015 Little Caesars Invitational All-Tournament Team.
Durant helped guide the Silver Foxes to a Class A Division II state championship this past season as the team’s quarterback and free safety. He passed for 621 yards and seven touchdowns while rushing for 603 yards and 12 touchdowns. Defensively, he recorded 50 total tackles, 32 solo tackles and snagged four interceptions this season.
In his time at Lamar High School, Durant was named to an All-State team and an All-Region team.
