Leadership points Grant to Army

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Three years ago, Keiran Grant was preparing for his first varsity season as a Cuero Gobbler. He was only a freshman, but Grant was more than ready for the moment and always knew four years of high school football would not mark the end of his competitive playing days. His goal of playing college football will soon be a reality, as he verbally committed to attend Army, but not before his senior season in green and white.

As a four-year varsity starter on offense and defense, Grant has grown not only athletically but as a leader. Cuero head coach Travis Reeve has been a witness all along the way.

“Keiran is the embodiment of what West Point is looking for in a student athlete,” Reeve said. “He is truly unique with his combination of athleticism on the field and his work ethic and desire to be great off of it. I’m not sure that I have coached a stronger leader or a guy who wants to be a difference maker more than he does. Our nation is need of uncommon men like him, and I am proud that he will be representing Cuero at West Point. He is going to be something special long after his playing career is over.”
