Tyronne Drakeford knows, all too well, the difficulties and choices which student-athletes face at North Central. A 1989 graduate of the school and former Knight football, basketball and baseball standout, Drakeford played alongside teammates who were forced to miss practice time due to not being able to get to or from the school’s Boonetown campus. With an enrollment footprint which extends from the Lake Wateree area and north into Cassatt and Bethune, it is a healthy haul for players to get to offseason football workouts in the summer months and find rides home from practice during the season.
