During the game, members of the LCHS boys and girls basketball teams honored the late Albert “Spud” Dock by wearing memorial T-shirts and many student groups made cards and posters for the Dock family, according to school administrators. Dock died in a car accident late last month. Two other students, David Jackson and Deven Merchant, were injured in the same crash. 

A photo collage titled “We Are Liberty” was presented to LCHS Principal Stephanie Woods, LCHS school officials said. 

“Liberty had their Senior Night last Tuesday versus Appling County,” said LCHS Basketball Coach Julian Stokes. “We honored Spud during that night with presentations of gifts to his mother and sister during halftime of the varsity boys game and had a moment of silence before the game as well. This past Saturday, February 2, was Bradwell’s Senior Night. The student that was injured from their team, Deven Merchant, was able to walk during Senior Night and be acknowledged by his school.”
