Armwood Head Coach Sean Callahan
"Every player on our football team looks up to Josh Grady. The way his teammates talk about him, you just know they hold Josh in very high regard. He's one of those rare guys that makes everybody around him better.
"I've been doing this for three decades and Josh is the best football player I have ever had. From academics and competitiveness to being a great teammate, he is it.
"Besides being a great football player, Josh has great balance in his life. The young man is simply one of the most special people I have been associated with."
