At 6-foot-2 and 230 pounds, Brent Gritton has the size to play linebacker at the major college level and also the talent.
Gritton recorded more than 120 tackles from his linebacker position as a junior and looks forward to leading Lincoln East to the elite level of Nebraska's largest school class - Class A in 2004-05.
