There has been many “red’s” in sports. Red Auerbach is widely considered one of the greatest coaches in NBA history. The “Red Mamba” Matt Bonner is a 2-time NBA champion with the Spurs. However, a new Red has arrived. Frankie Grizzle, more commonly known as “Red Lightning” is a fan favorite; not as a player, but as a ball boy. After starting off washing jerseys for Florida State, he worked his way up to being a sideline ball boy, where he felt responsibility for protecting Jameis Winston. This is where the legend began.
Now, he along with his fiery red hair will join the Falcons, where Red Lightning hopes to continue his legacy. After attending FSU from 2013-2015 for his final 2 years of college, he hopes to provide the Falcons with motivation, clean jerseys, fresh footballs, and something to laugh at every once in a while.
