WI DE Adam Grimm Getting Midwest Attention

Adam Grimm, a 6-foot-4, 240-pound defensive end from Mequon (WI) Homestead, was named to the BadgerStatePreps All-State Team and was a Wisconsin Football Coaches Association and the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel honorable mention all-state choice. Grimm was named the 2003 North Shore Conference defensive lineman of the year as he anchored a line that allowed 75.8 rushing yards. He recently attended the Minnesota-Illinois State game, where GoldenSports.Net got a chance to catch up with him.

Adam Grimm is a three-year varsity starter for a team that has advanced to the state semi-finals the past two years. Grimm is ranked second among BadgerStatePreps Top 12 defensive ends in the Class of 2005. He had 67 tackles, 4 sacks, 18.5 tackles for loss, one fumble recovery and four defended passes.

Homestead is off to 4-0 start this season and plays Nicollet away tonight.

Grimm went to the Northwestern, Northern Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana football camps this summer. He is considering Northwestern, Northern Illinois, Minnesota, Notre Dame, Ball State, Western Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana. Grimm told me that he plans to attend the Ball State game versus Western Michigan this weekend and go to games at Northwestern on October 9th and Northern Illinois October 23rd. He is still looking for his first scholarship offer.

Grimm has run a 4.7 40 and a 4.9 40 on the Wisconsin turf. He bench presses 300 pounds. He is an excellent student with a 3.4 GPA and an ACT score of 26.

Grimm said that he wants to go to medical school and perhaps major in biology.

He is playing defensive end for his high school team and fullback on goal-line situations.

Grimm said that most teams are looking at him as a defensive end, due to his speed with the thought of bulking him up.

Grimm gets high praises from his high school coach ,who recently talked to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about his star player.

"Adam is one of the best football players in the state," said Homestead head coach Dave Keel. "He is a tenacious football player with a tremendous motor. We can't block him in practice."
