"It was hard not to notice me," former LSU track star Cyril Grayson said. Grayson was an elite runner in high school at Archbishop Rummel High School and at LSU.
Grayson was a highly recruited track athlete and was asked to be a preferred walk-on for the football team, but was ineligible his freshman season and decided to focus on track.
After winning four NCAA Championships, one SEC Championship, seven All-American honors and 5 All-SEC honors, Grayson decided to sign as an undrafted-free agent in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks before making stops in Chicago and Houston.
After leaving Chicago a second time, Grayson would sign with his hometown team, the New Orleans Saints, for the preseason.
After leading the Saints in receiving yards during the preseason, Grayson was left off of the 53-man roster and is searching for another opportunity.
