    Former Thomasville Bulldog and App State linebacker goes in the fourth (107th overall) to the Cincinnati Bengals! Great young man and hard worker.

    Happy for him, great to see a Bulldog in the NFL! Was hoping he become a Raven or join my cousin Shy in NO.:D

    Akeem played some running back. Trevan Davis was a tremendous running back for the ‘Dogs several years before. Great family. Akeem’s dad, Keith Gaither was a great player in his day as well and is now a college coach.

    I'm guessing he played during 2011-2012 years? I was out of state at the time. Keith Gaither and my older brother were teammates on the 91 team, played together in middles school too. Akeems older cousin was a good friend of mine in grade school at Thomasville, great people indeed.
