Did you know that Charlotte Christian has our very own soccer star? Well, we do! His name is Grant Kiker and he is a senior. Over the past few years fans have corrugated at games to witness his abilities and cheer after his many goals! Grant made his presence known every game and was a key to the success of the team. Over the course of three games this season, Grant scored 12 goals! Incredible! But, it doesn’t stop there. Grant was also an incredible leader for the rest of the team. He motivated them to put forth effort in every practice and kept the team’s spirits high. Grant is an amazing role model to all of his teammates. Grant is dedicated and gives his all during each game, and one time, his body took a punch. In the span of only one game, he broke both and arm and leg. But do not fear, it didn’t hold him back and Grant continued playing the sport he loves. His talents have earned him many awards. In both his junior and senior year, he was named all-state, all-conference, and all-region.
As he closes this chapter of his life and opens another, Grant will attend the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. He plans to major in business administration.
Next year, our school will not be the same without Grant. We will miss his humorous personality making us laugh during class and soccer games will not be the same. Grant, we wish you the best as you embark on this adventure! Never forget the memories you have made during your seven years as a Knight and the friendships you made. We will miss you!
