Excellent, Grant! For a look at his progress here's the James LaCombe article from 2016 when Grant was 11 years old:


According to the 2016 article: "Grant now boasts a top field goal distance of about 35 yards, which puts him among the state’s best for his age group, according to his own research scouring the internet."
