Graham Duncan never thought this opportunity would be possible when he joined the football team at Division II Lenoir-Rhyne, a small private university located in Hickory, N.C. The former North Hall Trojans standout was stepping into a program coming off a dismal 3-8 season, and one that hadn’t won a playoff game since the 1960s when it competed in the NAIA.Fast forward five years and many things have changed for Duncan and the Bears. This Saturday, Lenoir-Rhyne (13-1) will face second-ranked Northwest Missouri State (14-0) in the NCAA Division II Championship Game in Florence, Ala. For Duncan, it’s his final college football game and an opportunity to end five years as a cornerstone of Lenoir-Rhyne’s football resurgence on the highest possible note.
