Kershaw, SC (WLTX) --- Grayson King is a three-year starting quarterbackfor the North Central football team, but baseball is his best sport.

The standout pitcher will play on the next level a Francis Marion where he will major in business administration.

But his priority now is leading the Knights' football team to a strong finish to close out the regular season.

In the classroom, King is sporting a 3.4 grade point average which ranks his 21st in the senior class.
