GSP Player Profile: QB/WR David Graves

Golden State takes a look at Folsom (Calif.) athlete David Graves, who left his mark this season, his lone year as the starting quarterback, and is headed to Hawaii to play...

David Graves, Folsom High School QB, played his last prep football game in the Sacramento's North vs. South Classic and had a great game. The North blew out the South. Graves was then set to go and play for Nevada. He had verbally committed to Nevada, but a verbal is not binding. Graves received an offer from Hawaii and is now headed there. He verbally committed to Hawaii this past Monday and will formally sign with them. The signing date will be on Feb.4, which is the first day high school football players can sign with the college of their choice.

  David is the Sacramento Bee's, a local news paper, All-Metro Player of the year. He was a wide receiver during his Junior Year. Graves played QB prior to playing varsity, so it's not a new position for him.

  In his junior year he had 32 receptions for 420 yds, averaging 13.13 yds per carry. He also rushed, in his junior year, for 315 yards at 5.43 yards per carry and had 4 touch downs. Graves also had a few tackles to his credit during his senior year.

Graves exploded onto the 2008 scene. He completed 72 percent of his passes for 2,771 yards, 40 touchdowns in 11 games, and rushed for 696 yards. Graves is definitely a dual threat QB who will fit well into the mix in Hawaii, not to mention spending the next 4 years in paradise. Aloha!!
