WR Joe Craig Profile
Heading into the meet, Gaffney senior Joe Craig, who won the 200m and finished second in the 100m last year, set high expectations for himself in the week leading up to the race.
"As soon as state qualifying was over, we went into training and I was wanting to break the record in the 100 and the 200," he said. "By not getting that, I was a little disappointed. Then again, I'm satisfied because I won."
Craig ran a 10.78 in the 100-meter and a 21.79 in the 200-meter at Lower Richland High School.
Not bad for a guy who "popped" his groin before the state qualifier and didn't practice leading up to that meet.
During track season, all of his focus was on sprinting. His focus now however has already switched back to football.
"I went (Sunday) and worked out. I ran some routes and did some drills with my track coach, coach [James] Davis. We went together and I worked out," Craig said.
He's also been enjoying the dwindling days of high school enjoying time with friends who will be heading their separate ways.
"We've only got a few more days left in school. We're all just trying to hang together and have fun," Craig said. "I'm still focusing on grades, though."
In need of a 980 on the SAT, he made a 1030. All he needs to do is finish up in the classroom and he's all qualified for Clemson.
Craig also added he regularly keeps up with fellow wide receiver signee Martavis Bryant.
"We text on a daily basis. We always talk about sharing a room with each other, who we're going to room with," Craig said. "I talk to coach (Jeff) Scott a lot too. I'll talk to coach (Dabo) Swinney every once in a while."
