NETTLETON, Miss. (WTVA) - For the Gardners, playing basketball at Northeast Mississippi Community College is a family affair.
Nettleton head boys basketball coach Grant Gardner played for the Tigers in the mid-90s. Grant's brother Guy played for Northeast in the late 90s and early 2000s. Guy is a member of the NEMCC Sports Hall of Fame.
On Wednesday, Grant Gardner's son Grady signed with NEMCC basketball.
As a senior point guard at Nettleton, Grady averaged 15.1 points per game and was the district 4-3A MVP.
'It's an amazing experience, really, cause I get to have the chance to be able and raise banners and win state championships like they did,' said Grady Gardner.
