Southwest High School senior C'ing Blanton signed a National Letter of Intent to play football at Texas Southern University on Wednesday, Dec. 18. Blanton is the first Fort Worth ISD student-athlete to sign as part of this year’s early signing period.
Blanton (6-2, 185 pounds) was the 2019 District 4-5A Offensive MVP, playing both quarterback and wide receiver throughout his career for the Raiders. Southwest was one of four FWISD teams to reach the playoffs this season. Blanton also participated in track and field.
Other FWISD student-athletes in multiple sports are expected to wait until the February signing day to participate in the District-wide ceremony.
