((His day begins in downtown Roanoke at J.C. Bradford and Company where he has been a stock broker for three and a half years. ((NAT SOUND:))
He manages close to 20 million bucks in 500 accounts. His company has recognized him, as has National Business Magazine Registered Rep, which is doing a feature story on him. Teammate Aaron Ewert has played with Prillaman since grade school and now invests with him. ((:)) ((:))
His consistently calm deamanor is one of Grayson's strengths. He credits his success to an ability to draw on lessons learned from either soccer or brokerage and then applying them to any challenging situation. ((:))
two month old Elizebeth has added a new element. you do the math. In a week, he spends up to 60 hours in the office, 15 to 20 hours practicing or on the road, and then the wrest...at home with wife Kit and the baby. ((:)) ((:))


Prillaman has 1 goal and 2 asist so far this season. Steve Mason, News 7 sports.))[Close-ID]
