Armwood’s Lifghtsey signs with Mercer

Armwood senior offensive lineman Jack Lightsey has signed with Mercer (Ga.) University, Hawks coach Sean Callahan confirmed Friday.
The 6-foot-3, 275-pound Lightsey, who started in all 15 of Armwood’s games last fall en route to the Class 6A state title, marks something of a milestone for the Hawks because his signing means all five of their squad’s offensive line will be playing college football.
Lightsey, Armwood’s right guard, joins left guard Cody Waldrop (South Carolina), right tackle Kevin McCoy (Vanderbilt), center Cameron Dees (Marshall), and left tackle Brandon Teeling (Samford).
Last fall, Mercer’s board of trustees unanimously approved the return to intercollegiate football for the 2013 season, ending a 70-year hiatus for the sport at the Mercer. The first intercollegiate football game played in the state was between Mercer and the University of Georgia in 1892.
