Grassman Commits to University of Buffalo as a Kicker/Punter

Image: GLHS Tyler GrassmanGahanna Lincoln High School football standout Tyler Grassman's athletic career will continue beyond high school. February 1 is National Letter of Intent Day (NLI), an annual event which by signing, students formally agree to attend that college for one year, and the recruiting school guarantees a scholarship for at least one year. The NLI program is administered by the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Eligibility Center.

Tyler is being signed to a full scholarship to the University of Buffalo as a kicker and punter. It is expected that he will join the team and be kicking in upcoming games in the fall. The LHS senior plans to major in  business and finance.

Grassman had an outstanding senior year as not only Gahanna’s punter and kicker, but as the quarterback.  Grassman was playing wide receiver and safety at the beginning of the season, but after an injury to the Lions’ starting quarterback, Grassman took over and has led Gahanna to a 8-2 record (9-3 overall). The 6-foot-1, 178 pound Grassman completed 143 of 227 passes for 1,818 yards with 17 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He also led the Lions in rushing with 644 yards and six touchdowns.
