Cuero, Texas -
A fifth Cuero football state champion, signing with a college Wednesday.
Keiran Grant, signing with the United States Military Academy at West Point. Grant was Texas AP Sports Editors 4A honorable mention All-State as a running back and defensive back. In his senior year, Grant was the Gobblers' second leading rusher, with 1410 yards, averaging just over 100 yards per game, 8.6 yard per carry average, and 25 touchdowns. As a junior, Grant rushed for 1432 yards and 29 touchdowns. I talked with Grant and Cuero football head coach Travis Reeve.
Said Grant, "This moment means a lot to me as far as my family. To do something in our family that hasn't been done, to be the first one to set an example for the younger generation, such as my nephews and all my cousins, it means a lot."
Said coach Reeve, "It's great. It's a real tribute to our senior class. This was a senior class that had about 15 All-State Academic kids on it, had guys that are going on to play at the collegiate level."
Three of the Cuero football state champions now play basketball, and the Gobblers are in the boys hoops playoffs for the first time in five years.
