Lebrun Northington (center of front row), along with coaches and family, signed to play college basketball for the Southern Crescent Tigers last week.

Northgate Head Basketball Coach LaVarrett Pearson and the Vikings announced that senior Lebrun Northington signed to play college basketball at Southern Crescent Tech this past week.

Northington and seniors Kenny Orr and Adrien Seegopaul helped the Viking program improve from a two-win season in 2021 to 10 wins last season.

Last year, Northington made his presence known for the Vikings when he scored 28 points on the road to defeat the McIntosh Chiefs in a Region 2-5A contest.

The Southern Crescent Tigers are under the leadership of Head Coach Calvin Sinkfield and play their home games at the Taylor Street Gym in Griffin, Georgia. They compete in the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association.
