South Plaquemines High School senior Truce Williams recently signed on to play basketball for University of the Southwest in Hobbs, New Mexico. Williams graduates this year with a school record 1,355 points scored for the Hurricanes, 859 rebounds and 173 blocks. He was named the District 12-2A most valuable player, named to the Boys All-Metro team, the Jefferson vs. Orleans All-Star game and nominated for the McDonald’s All-American Game. He will graduate with a 3.4 GPA and made a 28 on the ACT. “I’ve never coached a kid that works this hard and genuinely cares for others like him,” said SPHS Basketball Coach Cameron Hill. “He is a great basketball player but an even better person. I wish him nothing but success in New Mexico and I know he will make us all very proud!”
