All Lance McCray’s ever wanted was to join a college football team where his mother could come see him play. That dream came true on March 14 for Lance, a Camden High School (CHS) Bulldog fullback and tailback who’s also been running short track this spring. That was the day he received an acceptance letter from Benedict College.
