Grady Thomas signing 002

Grady Thomas has been a member of the Spartanburg Vikings football team and wrestling teams for all four years of his high school career. He is a two year letter winner in football and a four year letter winner in wrestling.

A two year starter and anchor on the offensive line, Grady has helped lead the Vikings to back to back state semi-final appearances.  As a result of his tremendous play, Grady was selected as an All-Region selection his junior and senior years; USA Today All-State as a senior; Spartanburg Herald Journal 1st Team All-Area; and was selected to represent South Carolina as a member of the North Carolina/South Carolina Shrine Bowl this past December.

As a wrestler, Grady has had another phenomenal year in the heavyweight class.  He will return this year as a two year qualifier for the state individual tournament and has been an integral part of leading the Vikings into the state team playoffs starting this Saturday.  As well, Grady won the County Championship in the heavyweight division as a senior.

Maybe Grady’s best stat has nothing to do with his ability on the field or mat but instead his ability in the classroom.  Grady has established an outstanding GPA of 4.516 that ranks him in the top 12% of his senior class.  For his academic accomplishments, Grady was selected as a member of the Spartanburg Herald-Journal’s All-Academic team for the last two years and is a member of the National Honor Society and Beta Clubs at Spartanburg High School.

Today, Grady is making it public his decision to sign a full scholarship to attend and play football at Western Carolina University.

Congratulations Grady!  We are proud of you!  You represent the Vikings well!
