At first thought, the idea seems a bit irrational. Here you have a quarterback who in the last two years has thrown for 50 touchdowns, passed for almost 5,000 yards and led his team to 20 victories in 21 games, yet somehow lacking notoriety.
Such is the curious case of Tim Graham.
The Darien High School quarterback has done all of the above, and then some. Graham and his Blue Wave teammates will face arch rival New Canaan in Thursday’s Turkey Bowl game that will decide the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference championship. Beating the Rams for the second consecutive year in the FCIAC final might increase the attention the 6-foot-4, 185-pound senior garners, but probably not. And that’s just fine with Graham.
