“I am blessed and very excited to be able to play football at the next level,” Liggons said, “I have put the work in for this moment and it just feels great knowing I am moving on to play at the next level.”

Liggons explained why he chose the Eagles, “I chose Carson-Newman because when I went for my visit it just felt like home to me, and all of the coaches showed me love, I also feel like I could be a great key player for the team.”
