’23 DE leaves Woodford County is all-timer in QB-sacks
Grant Garrison is an elite high school DE who had a first-team, All-State season for his 11-2 Woodford County hive of Yellow Jackets. He is a bit undersized but makes up for it with over performance. Is he an All-Stater at the high school level? We don’t believe this debate is even close.Fletcher Long, Chief Scout, KPGFootball
For those of you who are experiencing their first KPGFootball offseason, here’s how it works. We will continue to cover the “seniors” up until national signing day in February or until the Associated Press (AP) releases its all-state team, whichever last occurs. Then, we will turn our complete and total attention to the ’24’s and under, from that point until the season opens.
We still have some work to do from now until then. One of those responsibilities is for us to identify players we believe to be suitable All-State candidates for the AP team, as we are voters.
One such guy has to be Woodford County’s Grant Garrison. First of all, Garrison comes from. a football lineage. His father was a tough-customer too we are told.
The younger Garrison leaves the Woodford program its all-time sack-master. That is quite a feat.
Garrison is what some college programs refer to as “undersized” for defensive end. We don’t know where the lack of height or length impacted his performance.
Though 5’10,” and weighing 220-pounds, Garrison registered 60.5-tackles, a whopping 20.5-TFL’s, 8-QB sacks, and a forced fumble. Garrison spent a ton of time in opponent’s backfield molesting the opposition’s ball-carriers and passers.
What we think makes this DE an infinitely more attractive “take” is his 3.67 GPA. Factor in his excelling in track too and it really isn’t much of a gamble.
Garrison is being heavily courted by numerous Kentucky small colleges. He is exactly for what programs at that level are searching. His performance, motor, hand violence and get off, power and explosion are all D-1. His frame may not be but he really doesn’t control that.
In every measurable he can control, he is off the charts. Is he an All-Stater? Yessir, first-team we would reckon.
