Hi folks, I was recently invited to the Point Loma HS Football Awards Banquet out here and saw Kyle Grady there of course and I thought I would put together a little Q & A Thread so that we can get to know him.
I told him I was planning on doing this and he was definitely positive about it. I emailed him a few questions and I'll cut and paste his exact answers. He seems to be a terrific young man in my few encounters with him and I'm really excited for him and looking forward to following his career.
Here we go:
- Height and Weight....6'3" and 180 lbs., runs a 4.64 in the 40
- Stats for Senior Season.....121/180 (67%) 2,063 yds 17 TD's, 616 yds rushing on 110 carries and 10 TDs. He was also a 2 year captain, impressive!
- Why Michigan?
"Perfect fit academically and athletically, facilities are state of the art, and most of all the coaching staff led by Coach Harbaugh do a phenomenal job and I can’t wait to work with them".
- What do you plan on majoring in?
"Plan on pursuing a business degree"
- What are your goals and aspirations?
"Primary goal is to get drafted, second would be to start a business, other than that I am also interested in pursuing a career in the Navy or Marines as an officer, as well as coaching at the college level or above".
- When do you plan on moving to A2 and starting your college career?
"Move out to AA mid-june, right after graduation and as soon as I can pack my things".
- Add anything that you think will be interesting about yourself.
"I love to snowboard, I fly helicopters, I surf"
He has a 5.0 GPA and presents himself in a very mature way, I'm going to be rooting for him to do great things, I've been very impressed by him and I wish him the best of luck. If you see him around campus please welcome him with open arms and help him get to know the wonderful city of Ann Arbor, I'm sure he'll appreciate it as he'll be a long way from home. BTW, I will be emailing him a link to this thread, FYI. So if you have questions for him, I'm sure he wouldn't mind answering them as he'll be reading the comments.
Here's a link to his HUDL Page and Highlights:
The competition level is pretty good too, they played quite a few ranked teams.
