CYRIL GRAYSON JR. IS A NEW ORLEANS NATIVE WHO ATTENDED ARCHBISHOP RUMMEL HIGH SCHOOL. HE WAS A TOP STUDENT ATHLETE, SETTING RECORDS IN BOTH TRACK & FIELD AND FOOTBALL. HE ENDED UP RECEIVING A NUMBER OF COLLEGE OFFERS FOR TRACK, SO HE DECIDED TO GO TO A SCHOOL KNOWN FOR ITS AMAZING HISTORY IN BOTH, FOOTBALL AND TRACK; LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY IN BATON ROUGE. THINKING THAT HE WOULD BE ABLE TO DO BOTH SPORTS. WHEN COMPLIANCE AND ELIGIBILITY BECAME AN ISSUE HE DECIDED TO COMMIT TO TRACK AND FIELD 100%.
