The Jay Graves Report

Center Grove's talented freshman, Carson Steele, is runnin' wild on boyz this season. Now he's got his biggest test on Friday against the Ben Davis Giants. Photo: TheJayGravesReport

It’s Week 4 of the high school football season in Central Indiana and boyz are gettin’ it in!! From Week 1 a dun that they call the “War Horse,” known to his momma as Carson Steele down at Center Grove, has been wreckin’ shop for three straight weeks!

I told boyz openin’ night that he was the real deal when he destroyed then No.3 Warren Central for 133 yards in his very first game at the varsity level. Oh, you didn’t know? He a darn freshman and he’s runnin’ wild in the best conference in football in Indiana and one of the best in the COUNTRY!!!

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! In three games he’s carried the rock 58 times for a total of 527 yards and 9 touchdowns! He’s averagin’ 9.1 yards per carry as a darn FRESHMAN!! Wheredeydodatat?

Ole boy has run wild since they put a uniform on him bruh. He popped Warren Central for 133 yards out the gate in a loss 27-24 where he literally put the team on his back in the second half as he helped them score 24 unanswered. Then for the next two weeks he’s run so much that he’s still runnin’! I couldn’t interview him because he’s literally still runnin’ all over Carmel right now.

“Y’all been watchin’ this foolishness bruh? Oh, it’s on now!”

But somethings gotta give in Week 4 playa. Center Grove is at the crib against that run-a-way train from the westside known as The Ben Davis Giants and they ain’t playin’! They’re averagin’ 56 points a game with weapons all over the field. Coach Mike Kirschner is pullin’ boyz out of his pockets like Mayweather and $100 dollar bills. He’s got crazy options on every play. Reese Taylor can tuck it (averagin’ 65 ypg) or throw it (averagin’ 239 ypg). His receivin’ corp is NUTS with Broc Thompson and Jermaine Hoskins. Then his runnin’ backs are sick with it in Johnny Adams and Joey Person.

Then they’ve got a dun on defense with the best name in football at any level bruh! Linebacker Sir’Zion Dance!!! He’ll be the X-factor as to whether Carson Steel “The War Horse” gets room to run on Friday. Can the dun with the hot name keep the dun with the ability to run wild in check? That’s the question that boyz won’t be able to answer until Friday night and I’ll have a front row seat playa. Somethings gotta give and you can stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”

The caption under the photo is real talk today!


In my Notorious B.I.G. voice, “If you didn’t know! Now you know!”


  1. I’ve watched this youngin, on webcast, from Florida for the past three weeks. He is second to none!! Yes he has it all!! The best to Carson and the CG program over his four years and beyond. I’ve watched a lot of HS football over the years going back to Gordon Teter with Lawrence Central (Purdue) in the early ’60’s. Carson is the best, and just a Freshman.

  2. No disrespect Mr. Graves, but Carson Steel is known to his momma and the rest of CG as “Potter”! Go Potter Steel!!
