Crusaders add Matt Gravely to 2016 signing class

The North Greenville kicking game got a big addition with the commitment of Kicker/Punter Matt Gravely from Pickens High School.

In his senior season at Pickens, Gravely was 11 for 14 on field goals, with a long of 47 yards and was 27 for 27 on PAT’s. He averaged 42.6 yards per punt with a career long of 73 yards. He also landed 12 punts inside the 20-yard line. Gravely claimed 35 touchbacks in 52 kickoff attempts during his senior campaign.

Gravely racked up several post season accolades including the 2015 specialist of the year for both Palmetto Champions and South Carolina Football Coaches Association. Gravely topped his senior season with a Shrine Bowl selection and was named to the School Sports Report All-State Football Team.

Coach Price on Matt: “Matt is a very special player in the sense that he can kick field goals, kickoff, and punt. Matt has a very strong leg and has no problem putting the ball through the uprights. He is really athletic and the ball really jumps off his foot. Matt had a great career at Pickens and has a lot of potential. We are very lucky and excited to have him join the Crusader Family!”
