The Slack athletic dynasty continues with J.J. Slack signing today to play both football and baseball at Southwestern University at Georgetown.

The Liberty High School senior was treated to a signing ceremony this afternoon with his proud parents and coaches Joe and Karen Slack at his side.

Slack was named All-District MVP this past December and made First Team All-District his junior year at running back, the year he set the school rushing record. His sophomore year Slack was named All-District Offensive Newcomer of the Year.

Slack was named to the Texas Sports Writers Association All-State Team for the 2017 season.

He made Second Team All-District baseball last season and in his freshman year. He was picked as the district’s baseball Defensive MVP his sophomore year.
