This NHFCS Spotlight Game of the Week was everything expected, and a bunch of screaming fans will remember it for a lifetime. The #2 Lightning were hosting their rivals, Hope Christian Eagles, of nearby Pelham, AL. Both teams came into the game as undefeated giants of Alabama prep football.
A true leader on both sides of the ball, Grant compiled a team-best 17 tackles.
Yardage came at a premium for both offenses, but Grant came through when it counted, scoring 2 rushing touchdowns and one long reception for a 3rd.
Turnovers were a big enough facter in this close game, and Grant's recovery of an Eagles fumble was just enought to defend the home turf for the lightning.
