Grace Sits Out Season Opener

Notre Dame verbal pledge Jarrett Grace was in uniform on Saturday night, but instead of taking the field to battle Northmont, Grace watched as his team rolled to a 35-6 victory.

Jarrett Grace will have to wait for another week to show off the talent that earned him a scholarship offer from Notre Dame. The Irish verbal pledge was dressed and ready to go, but instead was held out of the Cardinals 35-6 victory over Northmont in the Crosstown Showdown.
