Coach Mangurian on Bruce Grant: Bruce has played running back and wide receiver since he has been here. He has obvious strengths and he probably has the best straight-line speed of anyone on our team. Hands are average, but not from lack of effort. Has had some injury problems. Durability in a running back is paramount. Will work at running back this spring. Has gotten bigger and stronger by working hard this off-season. We need to find a way for him to contribute. May get some work in the secondary.

2011: Saw junior varsity action.
