D’Iberville football sends four to the next level

After winning the region 4 class 6A title for the first time in four years, look no further than the D’Iberville Signing Day class of 2021 as to who made that all possible.

Led by senior Quarterback Dwight Williams who has found a home at the next level with Pearl River Community College.

As the recipient of the program’s number 18 patch in honor of the late Latrell ‘Fred’ Dunbar worn each year by the one player that works the hardest and shows many attributes of being a leader, Williams is ready to learn the ropes from former Ole Miss Quarterback Bo Wallace, now PRCC offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, who many consider to be the poster for junior college football in the Magnolia State. “I just feel that he’s going to treat me as if it’s him in the Alabama game when he beat Bama, that I need to be on point, critique everything that I do and just make the best of it for my two years.”

Joining Williams in Poplarville is Kenneth Irving, one of four Warriors putting pen to paper this afternoon.

The other signees being Cullen Cox with Holmes Community College and Raymond Lias with East Mississippi, a national signing day dream come true for all parties involved. Irving said, “It means a lot because it’s like the community supports us so much, and it’s like – it feels good cause it’s all like me and my brothers, so that’s a special moment for us.”

Cox said, “We’ve been together for four years, so it was really exciting to be a part of that with them. I’ve always dreamed of signing. It was like my big goal.”

Lias said, “What meant the most to me was seeing all of my friends and family coming out and supporting me, signing, first time in the family doing a signing. My mom, it was her first time seeing it, so it felt amazing.”

D’Iberville had a total of five players sign, if you’re counting Mr. Football and Minnesota signee Justin Walley, who let the ink dry during the early December period.
