Commentary:

Sports have always been a part of my life. The late nights and early mornings of hard work were well worth it. Sports have taken me places I could only imagine, have taught me lessons that I continue to use in life, have allowed me to receive my college education for free and play QB at the Division 1 level.

Being a student athlete at Grant HS was an honor, we were fortunate to win several PIL championships and a state championship during my four years. Now being inducted to the PIL Hall of Fame is a reward that I am truly thankful for!

  • I would like to thank God first and foremost!
  • My parents: Tracy Clegg and James Broadous you have pushed me and challenged me to always strive for greatness!
  • My Grandparents: Betty, Grover Sr., Barbara, James Sr., the foundation you set has led the way for me and the family!
  • The Broadous, Clegg & Blackmon families for the support throughout my entire career.
  • My teammates and brothers: Grant, “Fab 5” Marcus and Chris.
  • My coaches and mentors: Grant coaching Staffs, Michael Jackson, Lionel Clegg, Grover Jr., Tony Broadous, Randal Clegg, Bryan Butcher Sr., A.T., Diallo Lewis, Barton Family, Terry Redeau. and everyone else who has supported along the way. Thank you!
