HIGH POINT – Fans at A.J. Simeon Stadium the last four years have seen High Point Central’s Derek Grant receive pass after pass from his quarterback, Drew Adams.

The Bison contest with East Forsyth, back on Friday, was once again dominated by those seniors, who hooked up 10 times for a total of 145 yards and two touchdowns in their 40-21 victory.

“We’ve spent a lot of time together,” Adams said. “If I throw it to him, he’s going to catch it. I have a lot of trust in him. I can put it anywhere in the area and not have to worry about it getting picked or what not.”

For the season, Grant has nearly twice as many catches as anyone else in the High Point Enterprise coverage area – with one exception: teammate Lashuran Monk.

Monk added eight receptions for 52 yards Friday, giving him 34 catches for the season, nine shy of Grant’s 43. Together, the wideouts have combined for 1,067 yards to easily make Central’s one of the most prolific aerial attacks in the Piedmont.

“Drew does a great job of spreading the field,” Bison coach Wayne Jones said. “Anytime you can make people defend the whole field, that puts a lot of pressure on the defense.”
