Gary Harrell, coach and principal has his hands full
at Grady High School. He's trying to put over a first year
football program which has had its share of "problems."
Last year, Grady took Flower Grove's 1B
basketball position. Flower Grove was consolidated with
Klondike. A brand new gymnasium was built in 1973.
This autumn. Grady took over the gridiron spot formerly
occupied by Cotton Center and which dropped
from the scene. Prior to last year, prep students from
Grady attended Stanton.
Grady, with Gary in charge, three years ago
started off enrollment as an elementary school.
"The main problem faced is getting enough students
out to field a team" Grady first had 14 report down to
the present 13, and competes in eight-man.
"Our boys have a real good outlook," Gary said. "They
do their jobs well, and realize the school is
somewhat at a disadvantage."
Grady, though winless in six games and without a
homefield. has showed steady improvement. A
stadium is to be completed before the 1975 season rolls
around. The playing field has been sodded to accommodate
Grady has two games left on the 1974 calendar —
Whitharrel today and Southland. Nov. 8. Gary
thinks "we have a good chance to beat both of
them." Harrel thinks his team will be able to compete
with any eight-man football squad next fall.
Grady loses five seniors after completion of the 1974
gridiron sport. Two juniors and three sophomores will
return. An outstanding eighth grade football team
will boaster Grady's forces next year.
Grady's girls' basketball season starts Nov. 12.
Southland is the named opponent with the game
earmarked for the Grady gym. The boy's squad
initiate court action Nov. 15 at Fluvanna.
Grady travels to all football games by school
