Football season is upon us Rhea County, and same as you, I am more than ready to be back under those Friday night lights.
As a preview of sorts, we’re focusing on individual players to give you a rare look under the winged helmets and Kelly green jerseys we see every game. I hope you all enjoy hearing from these guys as much as we did.
Last season, Graham played outside linebacker for the Eagles.
This season, Defensive Coordinator Taylor Owenby elected to move the physical, ball-hawking senior to corner to give a boost to the Rhea County secondary.
Graham was skeptical of the move at first, but trusted his coach and has come to be fond of playing at corner.
So fond in fact, he wishes he would have played it last season.
When asked about personal goals this season, all Graham had to say was that he was going to make all of the plays that he can for his team and his coaches, “because that is what my team is counting on me to do.”
He looks forward to playing Knoxville Catholic and Marion County this season.
