LaGrange's Martell Hawthorne Signs With Lamar

Martell Hawthorne Lamar
I'm sure you've heard the phrase patience is a virtue.
Well that belief was on full display today at LaGrange, As Martell Hawthorne signed a full scholarship to play football at Lamar.
This coming over three months after national signing day. LaGrange says several schools were recruiting him during the season, but pulled away before the process was over. 
      The wide receiver is the fifth Gator to sign this year, after the Cardinals offered him a full ride last week. Hawthorne says he never gave up hope during the process, but says getting the offer caught him by surprise.
