Eying Another Title

Wayne Gallman

Wayne Gallman does not have to worry about recruiting anymore. He has been set on Clemson since April and he is focused on winning his second state title in as many years.

"Winning back-to-back state titles has been on our minds since we started working back out after we the title last season," Wayne Gallman told Scout. "That really motivates us and we are not satisfied with just one state championship. I want to go out with two and that is what we are going for."

Gallman is able to give all his focus to his team because he does not have to deal with the recruiting process like many top prospects across the country.

This 6-foot-1, 196 pound senior out of Loganville (Ga.) Grayson back in April and he has never wavered.

"I still get stuff on Facebook or Twitter from schools, but I am locked into Clemson. It just feels right when I am there and since I visited them the first time, something has been in my heart telling me to go there. I have never really thought about another school since I committed to them."

Gallman likes the coaches and how they create that family atmosphere at Clemson, but he is also fond of the offense.

Some feels he may have a little more upside on the defensive side of the ball, but his heart is set on playing running back.

"A lot of people like me on defense, but I expect to play running back right now. I like that position, I work on it constantly to get better, and I feel I am a natural at that position.

"I think I fit in very good in Coach [Chad] Morris' offense at that position too. I can catch the ball, I can catch, and I can block. I think that is a perfect offense for me to play in.

"If I was asked to play linebacker, I would be a little down, but I would do it. I will help the team in any way."

Grayson finishes up the regular season against Brookwood Friday night and then start the playoffs November 16.

Gallman is ranked the No. 33 running back in the country on Scout.
