County field-goal record broken
by Staff Writer
Griggs’ kick, which gave the Hawks a 9-0 lead in the second quarter, surpassed the previous county mark of 55 yards by Charlotte Christian’s Brett Speakman in 1994. It also is tied for the third-longest kick in state history, according to the N.C. High School Athletic Association website.
The longest field goal in state history is 61 yards, a feat accomplished by Cline Ingle of Lawndale’s Burns High in 2000.
Griggs has committed to Purdue University and recently was selected to play in the 2012 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
