Tennis Signs Local Product
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee State tennis coach Robert Cain announced the signing of Grant Maddox to a National Letter of Intent. Maddox is completing his senior year at Greenbrier High School where he has played for Coach Blaise Miranda.
“Grant is in an awesome situation being he has a year to work on his game prior to putting on a TSU uniform,” Cain said. “Upon his arrival, there will be no expectations placed on him because of the make-up of our team. His responsibility will be to get to know our system and working on his game. He is a very hard working young man with a huge upside to his game.”
Maddox led GHS to a 2013 District Championship. The local product has amassed a 60-9 record including undefeated seasons in his sophomore and junior seasons. In doubles action, Maddox claimed district and regional championships in 2012. He also earned an individual District championship in 2013.
Maddox has won numerous individual tournaments as he has totaled a 40-15 record in the USTA 16’s and 18’s divisions. He has increased his skills over the last year as he has worked with private instructors including Cain and Wilson Webb. Maddox played basketball at GHS and is a member of the National Honor Society, BETA Club and Future Business Leaders of America. He intends to major in Business Administration at TSU.
