After camping over the summer at Minnesota, sophomore in-state kicker Grant Ryerse made his way back up to Minneapolis this past weekend and felt the tension in the rivalry

Woodbury (MN.) East Ridge sophomore kicker Grant Ryerse after his impressive performance at Minnesota’s camp. The young kicking phenom made it back up this past weekend and felt the tension the rivalry brings out of both schools.

“It went well and I thought the experience was interesting especially since it was a rivalry game,” Ryerse told GopherDigest. “We watched the specialists warm up, went and ate in the recruit room and watched the game.”

The 6-2, 200-pound kicker also had the opportunity to chat with quarterback coach Jim Zebrowski and special teams quality control coach Jay Nunez.

“I got to talk to some of the coaches afterwards,” said Ryerse. “I just said hi to Coach Zebrowski and I talked to Coach (Jay) Nunez about special teams, training, and their game plan.”
