COTTAGE GROVE SENTINEL NOVEMBER 1, 2017
Continued from B1
This was the turning point for
his mindset towards school and
the sport he loves.
“Halfway through that sea-
son our quarterback coach JJ
(Jordan Johnson) came up to
me during a practice and said
that I had potential to become
next year’s quarterback,” said
Graves. “I started taking second
team reps at quarterback under
our starting quarterback senior
Blake Sentman, and then head-
ing into summer and team camp
I was taking fi rst team reps at
the position,” Graves continued.
He put in lots of work in the
summer, between doing online
schooling to catch-up academ-
ically, to doing morning work-
outs with quarterback coach
Johnson to becoming more
skilled at the leader position on
the fi eld.
“When week one of this sea-
son came, I knew that I was go-
ing to be starting quarterback.
We had our plan for the fi rst
game and I knew what I need-
ed to do,” said Graves. “When I
took those fi rst steps on the fi eld
in the game, it was just a lot of
rush, it felt like everything was
coming at me at once,” he said.
That reality set in when the
fi rst three plays of the fi rst game
came along.
“In those fi rst three plays, I
got completely blown up, abso-
lutely destroyed, so I thought I
was in for a rude awakening,”
Graves said. But a rude awak-
ening was the complete oppo-
site from what really happened.
In the next play after getting
obliterated by the strong de-
fense, Graves threw for a 70-
yard touchdown to gain his fi rst
of many touchdowns this season
at quarterback.
Graves has had an impres-
sive season as the Lions start-
ing quarterback. Cottage Grove
went undefeated in league
play this year and are holding
a strong 8-0 record going into
playoffs. The Lions’ football
team has been ranked number
one in the entire state for the 4A
division for the majority of the
season.
“Heading into the playoffs, I
am not too worried about any
other teams in our way. We
know what other teams are ca-
pable of and I know what my
team is capable of and I know
we can execute,” said Graves.
After a bye week, the Lions
will play North Marion at home
on Friday night.
