Ask anyone about Grant Gregory in Southeast Ohio and they'll know exactly who he is. Ask someone from other parts of the state and they most likely will say, "Who?" Grant Gregory is slowing getting the much deserved exposure he's been waiting for. After an extremely busy summer consisting of camps all over the country, the senior-to-be Quarterback at Athens High School should be up pretty high on a lot of schools' lists.
OhioPrepScene.com received some film on Grant a few weeks back and I was very impressed. I've seen some film on the more highly-rated QBs in Ohio and I felt Grant was just as good, if not better than most. He's got a nice frame (6'3 195) and has all the tools to be a great QB. Grant has a very strong and accurate arm and makes good decisions from the QB position. While he lacks the track speed, he's got great quickness and mobility. His mechanics are nearly flawless rarely throws a bad ball. While he's not lighting up opposing defenses, he's knocking their stud tailbacks on their butts. Grant will be a four year starter at the Safety position next season. He hits very hard and is a good cover guy as well. Keep the name Grant Gregory in mind next season; you should be hearing a lot of him.
