Story set the record for AHSAA career yards and total touchdowns, and was the team leader on defense. 

Story’s father, Clifford Story, stepped down in May as Lanett’s head football coach after 14 seasons. Clifford Story still currently serves as Lanett’s athletic director. Story’s mother, Krisse Story, is currently the head volleyball coach at Lanett. Caden Story, Kristian’s brother, is a redshirt freshman defensive lineman at Clemson.
