Grimm Garnering Interest
With one season on Varsity under his belt, Leander (Tex.) Cedar Park quarterback Nate Grimm is ready to shine in his senior year. "My junior year was a pretty good season. It was a learning year. We started off the season kind of rough, but we figured it out well in the end," he said. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound signal-caller can easily recognize his growth on the field throughout the season. "I grew tremendously. Going into the year, I was nervous before every game and didn't have a lot of confidence, but by the end of the year, I was ready to go. Now, with that year behind me, my leadership will definitely play a role this season," he said. Grimm has caught the attention of a few college programs, including Texas A&M and North Texas. Coaches from both programs were by Cedar Park this week checking out the quarterback. The athlete is interested in both programs. "I've been meeting a lot of coaches. North Texas has been interested; I'm absolutely interested in them. I went to their Junior Day and it was awesome, I really liked it. "I went to Texas A&M Junior Day, too. That was pretty cool; I really like their school, too. I just met their quarterback coach. He came by the school this week, so I am hoping that they will show some more interest, too. Aside from recruiting, Grimm is looking toward his final season of high school football, and is putting in the work both on and off the field. "Through spring practices and workouts, I'm becoming more of a vocal leader. I'm doing what I can do to be efficient, move the ball down the field. We have camps throughout the summer and a personal trainer we all work with," he said.
