Gate City stymies Graham, defeats Lee

GATE CITY — Lee High running back Tyler Graham has been an unstoppable force on gridirons across Southwest Virginia this fall.

But with 4:10 remaining in Friday night’s Clinch Mountain District football showdown against Gate City, the unstoppable force met an immovable object.

With the Generals in Gate City territory and driving toward a potential game-tying score, Graham took a pitch on fourth-and-6 and hit the hole hard. He was met, however, by Gate City’s Jared Carter, who stopped Graham in his tracks.

The Blue Devils then ran out the clock, escaping with a 14-6 victory on Senior Night and locking up the Clinch Mountain championship in the process.
