If we were “gradying” him on “integrady”, he’d get an A+. Grady has been playing on Coach Matt’s ’07 Drive team this season and found it difficult to cap and box his soccer bill during skill exercises in practice.

Despite the hardship, Grady has been determined to improve his technical skills. “The past three practices, I’ve caught him finishing every single rep even after everyone else finishes and we’ve moved on. He does it without complaining when no one is watching and puts in the hard work. I love it,” said coach Matt.

Players like Grady encourage us that if you continue to do the right thing, whether someone’s watching or not, you’ll be a winner no matter what you do in life.  Thanks for living out our core value of October Grady!
