Ballard becomes Central Hinds' first D-I football signee

RAYMOND, MS (WLBT) - Wednesday’s early signing day brought a first for Central Hinds Academy football.

Stevie Ballard became the first Cougar player to ever signing with a Division-I football team out of high school when he signed to play with Louisiana Tech.

“It’s an honor,” Ballard told WLBT when asked about being the first Central Hinds player to go D-I. “It’s something that I had to work really, really hard for.”
