Going into last week’s game between Manassas (Va.) Stonewall Jackson and Woodbridge, much of the focus was on Da'Shawn Hand and Tim Settle – and deservingly so.
However, sophomore wide receiver Kalel Grant had a tremendous game, finishing with six catches for 140 yards and three touchdowns.
“I think I played pretty well,” said the 5-foot-11, 175-pound Grant. “My quarterback delivered the ball and I was able to make some plays.”
It is early and Grant is waiting to hear from colleges, but he mentioned four that he grew up watching.
“I grew up following LSU, Alabama, Maryland and Oregon because I like the schools,” he said. “They’re good schools and I'd like to hear from them.”
With the win, Woodbridge moved to 2-2, but Grant said his team has to be sharper going forward.
“We have to eliminate the penalties,” Grant said. “The celebration penalty we got and the false starts – we can’t have those. Other than that, I think we’re good.”
According to Grant, Woodbridge has one goal.
“We want to win a state championship,” he said. “It’s going to take hard work and dedication."
Woodbridge continues their season tonight on the road against Manassas (Va.) Osbourn at 7:30 p.m.
