William Graves is one of the top returning backs in our area and this kid can do one thing that will make Southern Guilford a threat every time they take the football field. This kid can run and better yet he can run fast. I’m talking real fast. He’s one of the top high school runners in the state in the 100 and 200 meters.
Take that speed and put a helmet and pads with it and you have a track meet getting ready to break out on the gridiron. William Graves could end up with some of the biggest numbers we have seen in recent years. Last season Graves rushed for over 1,200 yards and scored 14 TD’s and averaged 23 yards per kickoff return. Let’s say he doubles that this year.
Graves will be running against 2-A competition for the most part and he should dominate. Southern Guilford plays a very tough 3-A squad Southeast Guilford on September 7 but like I said, the 2-A teams better look out.
Can anyone stop this William Graves kid? He may be set to top the accomplishments of that other William Graves fellow who starred in basektball at Dudley HS and is now down in Roy Williams stable at North Carolina.
I honestly feel like that if I was coaching Graves he would be All-American. Give this fast man the ball and let him run all night long. Look for Graves to go over 2,000 yards and to score at least 24 times and Southern Guilford is on the way going deep into the playoffs.
If Graves gets hurt I’ll be out of the state until the end of the year.
