There was a time for Taurice Grant that it appeared as if his playing days were over.

Grant enters Week 3 of the season ranked second in the state in touchdowns with 13 total touchdowns. The senior has eight passing TDs, which is tied for hte state lead with three others and his 845 all-purpose yards rank fourth.

"It's been a blessing to be able to play my senior year," Grant said. "Even though every week isn't guaranteed because of COVID, I'm making the best of the opportunity.

"Personally, it's bene nice because I didn't see myself playing football against after breaking my collarbone. But I'm only pleased with wins and losses. It's a team sport at the end of the day and I go to battle with my brothers, not just myself."

The Warriors are coming off a thrilling 74-50 victory over GMG after opening the year with a 50-36 setback to Gladbrook-Reinbeck.
