Notable: Terry said he barely made the football team as a junior varsity player but he went on to see his role expand with the Trojans every season. He played offensive line for most of his first two seasons of play, then started working at tight end in addition to strong tackle as a junior. This past season he started at tight end and was a key contributor along the defensive line as well. He was Garners third leading receiver with 316 receiving yards and four TDs while also helping blow open the holes that helped the Trojans and Nyheim Hines have another big year rushing the football. He was recruited as a defensive end by Catawba but could play some tight end as well. At tight end, you get a little more fame, he said. You can go out for passes and I can show what I can do. On defense, I just like to hit and see how I can beat the guy in front of me. Terry was a two-time Academic All-Conference performer and an All-Conference selection as well for the Trojans. He says hell remember the practices with his Trojan teammates most from his time at Garner.
