His high school coach, Anthony Timmons, opted to reach for something from the divine column.
“I think it is God’s plan,” he said. “I told a reporter earlier this morning I believe. I am kind of glad I kept some of my old Graham gear. That way I can pull out a Graham hat that has got the Graham and the Georgia ‘G’ on it and feel right at home.”
“I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason.”
It isn’t an exact match. Graham High is known as the Red Devils. Not the Bulldogs.
“Everything except the mascot,” Timmons said. “But we tried to be Georgia and like Georgia through and through with everything.”
Feel free to insert your “McGarity is going to ask for retroactive royalties” joke here, if you like.
