Q&A: Georgia DE Ray Drew



Q: How does it feel to be back here at Central?

It feels good. I was talking with some people earlier, and I said how I miss high school football. Being able to come back out here, sit in the stands and look at the field and all, coming back to the track meets – I did a little track when I was in high school also. We did what they called the ‘Big Boy Relay.’ They got a bunch of lineman from different schools and put together a 4x100 team and I actually anchored it. We ended up winning it one year. That was probably one of my biggest memories from high school track.

Q: Speaking of high school football, what was your reaction to hearing that Central and Thomasville won’t play each other in football this fall?

Goodness. I asked Jim Rayburn when [he and] my leadership were up in Athens not too long ago what was going on with that because I remember reading a story about it and wasn’t sure exactly all the details with it. Not having Thomasville and Central playing is like having macaroni without chesse. It’s just not right. I’m hoping it’ll turn around sometime soon because it’s good for each school – both monetarily and for the players. That’s a big bragging rights deal every year. It’s part of the heartbeat of Thomasville. There aren’t too many things that get people up in arms, but that game right there is one of those games. Hopefully they’ll get whatever is wrong with it fixed and turned around. I don’t like it.
