Home of the Braves & Lady Braves!!!

Welcome Braves and Lady Braves fans.  My name is Brian Smallwood, and I am privileged to serve as the Athletic Director at Grant County High School.  I reside in Dry Ridge with my wife, Tamela, and have two children who are alumni of GCHS, Brianna and Jackson. 

At GCHS we believe that athletics is more than just sports.  The athletic programs offered at GCHS emphasize mastery of their sport and work on sportsmanship, integrity, personal growth, and teamwork.  Our coaches are committed to promoting the development of each student athlete’s skills, character, and leadership.
