Demarcus McGilberry signs with Southwest Community College.

Demarcus McGilberry joined the list of area 2020 signees on Friday morning. The South Jones senior defensive lineman inked his LOI with Southwest Community College inside the school’s Media Center two days after traditional National Signing Day.

“It’s been a long and hard [journey],” said McGilberry when asked about the opportunity to play at the next level. “My coaches sent film out to college coaches after all my games, and they always pushed me to do my best.”

A visit to Southwest Community College was all it took to convince the 6’1, 270 lineman.

“It is a great campus and atmosphere,” said McGilberry. “The coaching staff there is also amazing.”

McGilberry played both sides of the line at South Jones. He finished with 27 tackles and two sacks in eight games played during the 2019 season.
