McCray ready to play where he is needed for Tigers
CAMDENS LANCE MCCRAY SIGNED a National Letter of Intent to continue his academic and football-playing pursuits at Benedict College while flanked by, from left, his father, Lance McCray Sr., his aunt, Thomasina Grooms, and his mother Florene Davis. The back row includes family friend Brian Mayes, McCrays cousin, Whitney Graham, Camden High head football coach Brian Rimpf and CHS running backs coach SaVonn Wingate.
Every new coach needs players that he can rely on from day one and who will be there through thick and thin. For Camden head football coach Brian Rimpf, Lance McCray was that guy. When Rimpf took over the reins to the Bulldog program from Jimmy Neal in the spring of 2017, he was new to South Carolina --- never mind Camden --- having come here after coaching at Jack Britt High School in Fayetteville, N.C. As Rimpf made his rounds at his new school, he kept noticing how Camden players rallied around McCray.
