Grant Signs Track Scholarship

It can be hot as blazes or shivering cold. Wet or Dry. Every day there is one young man on the track at Red River’s Pat Strother Memorial Stadium. Not just yesterday or today. Not just for a few weeks, but for years he has been there. No matter the season, football, basketball, soccer or track, he’s there.

Sometimes with friends or teammates. Sometimes along. He runs every day.

Eric Grant is a graduating senior this year. He has played football and soccer and run track. And it all paid off just a few days ago.

Grant will continue to run while getting a higher education. Grant signed a track scholarship to Neosho Junior College in Chanute, Kansas. He’s pictured here gathered with coaches, family and friends in the Red River High Library for the signing. And yes, on the table, those are ribbons Grant won while at Red River.

Congratulations to Eric Grant. He’s running into the future!
