Dodd City's Hilliard signs with ETBU

Former A+ Athlete and Lady Hornet basketball star Fallon Hilliard signs to continue her athletic career at East Texas Baptist University.

Hilliard helped Dodd City reach the state finals, and she is excited to keep playing at the next level after thinking she may not.

"After talking with my parents and getting to see some of these college and campuses, I couldn't help myself," said Hilliard. "I wanted to continue playing just as soon as we finished the state tournament."

Hilliard is excited for her new journey.

"The campus is beautiful," she added. "The people are friendly. The drive over there was amazing, and it's fairly close to home. So I think it'll be really nice. I love the coaches and the players. All the other campuses I went and looked at failed by comparison."
