Former Gainesville boys basketball standout Maurice Hector signed his National Letter of Intent on Monday to continue his basketball career at Brewton-Parker College in Mount Vernon, Ga.
Hector is a member of the 125th class of Gainesville High School and will be graduating Friday.
“This kid is the epitome of hard work,” said Gainesville boys’ basketball coach Chuck Graham. “He waited his turn, never complained, but he kept working. He deserves this opportunity.”
The Barons, led by Daniel Prevett, are NAIA affiliated and part of the Southern State Athletic Conference. The men’s basketball team went 3-25 in the 2018-2019 season.
Congratulations to Maurice and his family.
