40k Unrelated- Tony Grippando D1 Football

Postby YeezyMozart » Fri Feb 08, 2013 1:29 am

Just wanted to let everyone in the community know that our very own Tony Grippando officially walked onto the football team for U of I and is now a college football player! Also for those of you who don't know, he is studying to be a rocket scientist as well. Is there anything this kid can't do? 8)

I know he will see the field next year with his determination and I plan on coming to some games. This is huge Tony congrats again! :shock:
I knew a man who once said, ”Death smiles at us all. All a man can do is smile back.”

Do you mean preferred walk on status? Regardless that is a great accomplishment and a wonderful opportunity for a good education. I had heard Beckmann was going hard with the Juco/transfer route. Was this the case with Tony?

Nope Tony went straight to UofI for aeronautical engineering (correct tony?) and then tried out and walked onto the football team. He reaaaally should have transfered to NIU for a better team haha. Congrats Tony!
