Braxton Kelley was part of a LaGrange defense that rivaled Camden County as the top unit in the state last year, and he is coming back to wreak havoc in 2004. Kelley was named 1st team All-State as a junior, and he had an amazing 144 tackles with 19 tackles for loss including 13 sacks last year. When talking about his favorite players, he likes one for his intensity and one at the same position as himself.
"I like Ray Lewis and Simeon Rice," said Kelley. "I like the way they play the game."
Who are some of the schools that Kelley is interested in seeing this year and possibly signing with next year?
"Right now I like Auburn and Georgia. I also like Arkansas, South Carolina, and Kentucky."
Coach Paul Lounseberry is recruiting Kelly for the Gamecocks.
Repeating as a State Champion and winning three titles in four years is the team goal, but what is Kelley working on individually?
"I'm just working right now on getting stronger and faster. I want to try and break the school sack record next year."
With all of the talent on the LaGrange defense, it will be hard to get enough snaps to break any kind of individual record. After all, it's tough to pile up stats with all of the three and outs, and that's the way the Grangers want it.
