North Webster’s TJ Hawthorne signs with Grambling

(Blake Branch/Press-Herald) North Webster's TJ Hawthorne is joined by his mother and Knights head football coach John Ware as he signs to continue his career at Grambling State University.

North Webster senior athlete TJ Hawthorne took out his retainer, listened to some encouraging words from North Webster Principal Jeff Franklin and put pen to paper, officially signing with who he said was his “dream school,” the Grambling State University Tigers.

Hawthorne announced his intentions at an intimate ceremony inside the North Webster High School Library with coaches, friends and teammates in attendance. In an interview with KTBS Tatum Everett following the signing, Hawthorne said he will play safety for the Tigers, adding that he’s been a lifelong Grambling fan.
