Grayson signs with Mid-South
By BARRY BURLESON
Quanisha Grayson will continue her basketball career at the college level, and her high school coach could not be happier.
“Quanisha is a phenomenal young woman,” said Renee Crenshaw, head coach of the Byhalia Lady Indians. “She has overcome adversity. She will be a first generation college student. Her motto is, ‘The difference between impossible and possible lies within a person’s self determination.’”
Grayson will be attending Mid-South Community College in West Memphis, Ark., on a full athletic scholarship. She signed with the Lady Greyhounds on Monday, May 14, at Byhalia High School.
She averaged 23.5 points, 10 rebounds and three steals per game for the Lady Indians and was named All-District.
“Quanisha is a beautiful person inside and out,” Crenshaw said. “I have coached many young ladies throughout my career. Quanisha is the first to have such a powerful impact on my heart. She is special to me.
“Her family, friends, classmates, teachers and, of course, myself – we are all proud of her accomplishments.”
Coach Crenshaw said Quanisha Grayson’s inspiration is her great grandmother, Annie Pearl Harris.
“When she speaks of ‘Ma Pearl,’ as she calls her, her eyes light up,” Crenshaw said. “She smiles a smile from within.”
