Bama running back Terry Grant came within two touchdowns of the Mississippi State record with 113 career touchdowns at Lumberton High School. He tallied 2,700 yards and 36 touchdowns in his senior season. He was tabbed Mississippi’s Mr. Football as a senior and was named to the All-State team. Also played baseball and track. Member of the National Honor Society and graduated with honors.
The 2007 season couldn't have started much better for Grant, who has scored touchdowns on the first snap in two consecutive games. A speedster who saw action in one game last year before hurting his shoulder and redshirting, Grant has taken off behind a resurgent offensive line and fueled Alabama's offense to this point.
He topped 100 yards in the first half against Western Carolina, finished off Vanderbilt with 120 second-half yards, and has five touchdowns to lead the SEC in scoring among non-kickers.
Since he's my running back," Crimson Tide center Antoine Caldwell said, "I feel like he's the best running back in the SEC." The 5'10" redshirt freshmen has 403 yards through three games, 5 TDs, and is averaging 134.3 yards per game.
