Liggins is Ready

Levander Liggins has some momentum going as he prepares to report to Louisiana Tech as an incoming freshman...

"We report in early July and I'm excited," said Louisiana Tech signee Levander Liggins. "I mean, there's nothing like it - starting college. I hope to make an early impact.

"I'm going to keep working harder and try to mature earlier. I want to study the playbook and get ready. I've been talking to Coach Dykes, Coach Spangler and Coach Tommerdahl, and they say it's looking good for me to possibly get early playing time.

"I just have to be ready to put in the work."

Liggins certainly put in the work at the recent Class 4A state track meet. He qualified in three events and took first place in the long jump (23-7 1/4).

"I was working all week to get ready for the long jump," said Liggins. "(Fellow Tech signee) Bryson Abraham was also at the state track meet for the long jump. He and I are both in the same region, so we jumped against each other at the regional meet, too (Abraham finished 4th in state with a jump of 22-9 3/4)."

Liggins is headed to Ruston with a humble attitude.

"I know a couple of guys who are already on the roster, so I'm not going to be shy around them when I get up there," he said. "They're going to keep me in line."

As a senior, Liggins racked up almost 3,000 all-purpose yards for Leesville. He averaged approximately 10 yards per carry and 22 yards per reception for the Wampus Cats.
