(FESTUS) Jefferson Blue Jay footballer Andrew Graves has signed his national letter of intent to continue his football playing days for the SEMO Redhawks. Graves put his name on the dotted line during National Signing Day on Wednesday and will now join a SEMO team that made history this past season by hosting and winning its first-ever playoff game.

This recent success was a big reason Andrew chose them.

Another attraction for Andrew to SEMO was the family atmosphere.

All in all, it was a great opportunity that Andrew just couldn’t pass up.

And the cool thing about Andrew signing his letter was that his older brother Austin got to be there for it.

In addition to officially becoming a member of the SEMO Redhawk football program, Andrew Graves has been selected to play in the prestigious 42nd Annual Missouri Lions All-Star game on July 20th in Warrensburg. Graves appears 12 times in the Missouri State Record Book, ten for offensive achievements and two for special teams.
