Diamonte Grant, who led Laurens Academy to its 1st victory on Saturday, is this week’s Laurens County Touchdown Club Player of the Week.
The Crusaders improved to 1-6 with a 66-30 victory over Jefferson Davis Academy on homecoming at LA.
Grant played an outstanding game from his tight and defensive end positions in the win over the Raiders. Laurens Academy travels to W.W. King Academy this week.
Grant was all over the field on both offense and defense. He had 4 receptions for 127 yards, scoring 2 touchdowns. On defense he made 5 tackles, 1 for loss, and caused a fumble. Grant, physical at the point of contact, is a quiet leader who leads by example.
Grant will be honored at the next LCTD Club meeting on Thursday, Oct. 21, at The Ridge in Laurens. The club meets every other Thursday throughout the football season and the public is invited to attend. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $15. All meetings are at noon.
