Fort Scott S Is Having A Great Offseason

Fort Scott safety James Grey (6-0, 200) hopes to follow up a standout freshman season, where he led the Greyhounds in tackles and ranked third in the nation in picks, with an even better sophomore campaign. With his productivity and natural instincts, the talented defensive back is definitely drawing attention from four-year programs and he updated on where things currently stand...

"It's been busy around here," Gray told recently. "We've had a bunch of schools through and I have talked a lot with Boise State, Colorado, Arkansas, Florida State, Kansas and Iowa State, but I am still waiting on my first offer."

As a freshman last season, Gray finished with 68 tackles, four tackles-for-loss and six interceptions.

"I can play either safety spot. I feel comfortable in coverage or closer to the line," Gray said. "I played as a high safety sometimes, sometimes in the nickel and sometimes down in the box."

Gray enjoyed a solid prep career in Atlanta, but was unable to qualify, so he decided to head to Fort Scott to continue his football career.

"They recruited me the hardest and I just liked the school and the program," Gray said. "It was good for me to get away and out on my own. It's been a good move for me."

Grey is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2014 football season.
