It had been 13 years since a Lugoff-Elgin boys’ basketball player signed a National Letter of Intent to continue his career in college. With a few quick strokes of the pen, Kevon Roberson put an end to that frustrating run. Roberson, a 6-foot-1, 173-pound point guard, became the first Demon since Delroy Moore in 2005 to affix his signature to a grant-in-aid when he signed with Spartanburg Methodist College in a ceremony held inside the L-E Wellness Center.
