Grant Haley made his presence felt on both sides of the ball for Lovett in its convincing 28-7 victory over St. Pius X Sept. 20.

Haley – a Vanderbilt commitment – led the Lovett defense at cornerback with six tackles and also forced a fumble.

On offense, he rushed for 86 yards on seven rushes for a 12.3-yards-per-carry average and scored two touchdowns – the first on a 45-yard scamper in the first quarter that provided the initial score for the Lions.

He went on to accumulate 141 yards on four carries, including a 99-yard touchdown run, in Lovett’s 35-13 win over Fort Payne (Ala.) last Friday.

For the season, Haley has rushed for 382 yards on 33 carries for an 11.6-yard-per-carry average and has scored eight touchdowns.

“Grant is a great kid, first and foremost,” Lovett coach Mike Muschcamp said. “He’s also a great athlete. He’s hungry and he’s humble. He’s one of the hardest working kids that we’ve had in our program since I’ve been here.”
