May 15-- Arkavias Lovett of Treutlen County High School signed his letter of intent for a scholarship to play basketball for the Bobcats of East Georgia State College in Swainsboro. Lovett was a standout basketball player for the Vikings helping lead them to the State Championship Game this season and to a record of 30-2.

Lovett was a four year player and a two year starter for the Vikings. Every year the Vikings made it to the State Playoffs, making it to the Elite 8 his sophomore year, the Final 4 his junior season and the Championship his senior year.

“It feels great. This is just a dream come true and have worked hard for. God has helped make my dream come true and I am excited today. I want to thank my mom. I have been through a lot growing up and she kept pushing me. I have to thank Coach Coney, he is definitely one of the reasons I am signing today.

“I want to go and major in criminal justice and hopefully use East Georgia to move on to a bigger school and to get to where I want to be.” Lovett said.

“I am very proud of him and just super excited for him. I am thankful for his coaches and his peers who have worked with him and helped him and have helped him throughout the school year. I feel that he will go on to East Georgia and do a super job.” Christina Lovett said.

Treutlen Head Coach Tyree Coney stated, “We are very proud of him. I knew this was a goal and a dream of his to be able to play on the next level and we are looking for big things. We tried to push him as much as we could and I know he is going to be a tremendous player at East Georgia. But the main point is he has the opportunity to further his education and to become a productive citizen later in his life. I am going to miss him a lot, and just wish him great success.”

East Georgia Head Coach Leroy Jordan said, “He just has good character. He is going to play hard and is going to represent this institute well. We are about molding young men into better men and we see that in him, that ability as a student and we know he can play the game. We want to get him educated, we want to show those younger kids here at Treutlen that they all can get there and we have high hopes for Arkavias.”5 13 19 Lovett
