Omaha, NE - With two games left on the schedule and opponents with a combined record of 3-11, something tells me Omaha North senior wide receiver Terry Grigsby will be targeted around the end zone a little more over the next two weeks.
Grigsby (6-2 / 195-pounds) has 41 receptions for 780 yards and ten touchdowns at the moment, just five touchdowns off of Tyler Shields' (Keraney, 2010) Class A single season receiving record.
"I feel my senior season is really going well individually and state wise...I'd like to reach the 1000 yard mark and maintain over 20 yards a catch," said Grigsby when asked about his goals over the next two games. "As a team right now, we're playing for a playoff spot and really looking forward to playing spoiler in the postseason."
Grigsby, who impressed the Nebraska coaching staff over the summer, is still in search of his first Division 1 offer. So far this season he has taken in games at Nebraska, Iowa State, Kansas State, and will be visiting Iowa this Saturday. He also plans to take trips back to Nebraska and Iowa State later in the season.
"It's very frustrating to not have a D-1 offer yet. Because I know a lot of the other guys that are getting offers, I'm just as good or a better athlete than them," said Grigsby. "It's humbled me as a football player and a person. It really makes me play harder and make plays each week to prove that I'm scholarship worthy. I still speak with Coach Cotton. Every time I take a trip down I speak with him briefly."
Starting as a corner as well for Omaha North, the Vikings have struggled to a 2-5 record, after looking very solid against Millard West in the opening game of the season. Next up will be two games on the road in Bellevue, as North will take on Bellevue East & West.
