Dutchtown’s Earl Warren signed a basketball scholarship to Copiah Lincoln Community College Wednesday in the school’s gym. “When I went on the visit, I liked it,” Warren said. “They said I would get a lot of playing time right away.” Warren earned first-team all-District 6-5A recognition this past season after leading the Griffins with a 15 point scoring average to go with to go with five assists, four rebounds, two steals and two blocks per game. “They run the court and play in transition,” Warren said. “That is what I like to do. To go to college and play basketball after high school is  a dream come true.” Warren is projected to play point guard but it his versatility to play three positions including shooting guard and small forward that makes him special, according to Dutchtown head coach Patrick Hill. “It is a good fit for him,” Hill said. “They run the same type of offense and more importantly, they get after it on defense.” Warren, center, is pictured with from left, mother Edna Gordon, uncle Keith Gordon and aunt Debra Gordon.
