Lane Grant reads the offense



Once he graduates high school, Lane said he’ll go to Oklahoma State University, following Seth to Stillwater. Though he doesn’t yet know what he wants to study, Lane said he’s interested in working in the oil industry after graduation.

“I kind of want to do something where, I don’t know what they’re called, but the guys that drive around, they’re on call all the time, and they go check the oil wells, write down the statistics,” Grant said.

“It just seems like it’d be fun.”

A two-sport athlete, Grant also plays third base in baseball. He said he especially enjoyed playing JV baseball with coach Jude Schlesselman his freshman year, which allowed him to bond with many other members of the Class of 2014.

When he has free time, Grant said he likes to hunt, especially deer hunt, and fish.

“I got a 12-point (buck),” he said. “I think it was my 10th-grade year. It was a pretty nice deer. It’s (mounted) in my room.”

Grant may have lost some of his football career to injury, but he’s worked hard to make sure he doesn’t lose the skills necessary to play his position well.

Because of that, whenever he’s on the field, Grant’s always capable of making a big play.
