Long County High School held its 2010 basketball homecoming ceremony Feb. 5. Senior Jake Durham was crowned king.

Durham, the son of Tony and Patricia Durham, is a member of the Blue Tide football and baseball teams. He was a homecoming prince as a sophomore and junior, and holds the senior superlative title of "most popular." Durham was escorted at the ceremony by his mother.

After graduation, the king plans to attend college, major in sports psychology and play football.

Dante Wright was crowned junior prince, David Stewart is the sophomore prince and Luke Golden is the freshman prince.

Other 2010 homecoming court members are freshmen Chris LaRochester and Shawn Mills, sophomores Lee Bailey and Kody Gottfried, juniors Jaylen Futch and Chris Stock, and seniors Justin Boyd and Terry Cunningham.

Durham was crowned by 2009 homecoming king Ricky Rivera, who was escorted by this year’s queen, Kelly Long. LCHS Assistant Principal Scotty Hattaway served as emcee.

After the crowning ceremony, the Blue Tide basketball teams took on Brantley County High School. The girls lost a tough game, 25-45, to the Lady Herons, but the Blue Tide boys won 65-52.
