I attended the Bullock County High School (BCHS) - Saint James Academy football game a few weeks ago. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that a 1966 BCHS graduate’s grandson, Clayton Craft, plays for Saint James.
Craft is a junior and plays middle linebacker for St. James Academy in Montgomery. He plays both offense and defense. His grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Claude (Joyce Chancellor) Davis. Joyce is a 1966 Bullock County High School graduate.
Joyce’s mother, Ruby Chancellor, taught second grade at Union Springs Elementary School for those who remember.
Joyce and Claude now live at the ‘old homeplace’ in Troy, AL.
Claude is retired from International Paper, and Joyce is a retired school teacher who taught at Fort Dale Academy in Greenville.
They have two children: Pam (John), who lives in Montgomery, and Keith “B” (Mary Caroline) Davis, who lives in Auburn.
They have three grandchildren: Clayton, Shelby, and Mary Oliver.
Clayton’s sister Shelby Craft is a sophomore at Auburn University, and his cousin Mary Oliver Davis attends Lee Scott Academy and is in the 10th grade.
As doting grandparents Joyce and Claude are at most games cheering for Clayton.
