Life is going well for Deion Subaran.

After, in his words, having a “pretty bad year” at Webb School, the new Coffee County Central senior feels at home, and now he is set for college.

In front of friends, coaches and teammates on Thursday, Subaran signed to play college basketball at Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee. It was a big moment for Subaran after an up and down past year.

“I had a pretty bad year .. at Webb,” explained Subaran. “But I was pretty good friends with Dayne (Crosslin) and his family and we decided to take the next step and move in with him and his family and it has worked out really well I think.”
