Tallahassee, FL. (WTXL) Grant Glennon and the Lincoln High Trojans fell in the State Quarterfinals this year, but Grant's season didn't end there. An appearance in the Under Armour All-America Game followed, a dream come true for the senior, but like any competitor, Grant still wants more.

"Any person you probably talk to always wishes they'd done more and even with the success, I wish I could do more or whatever."

That competitive fire is what the Trojans will miss next season.

"He has the best attitude you'll ever have as far as a player. I think that's so important for your leaders is to build up other players. He was always worried about other guys on the team and helping them."

"No matter on the football field, or where you are, you can be a leader and impact what you can do. You can impact the team, as long as you're a positive person, the odds are in your favor."

A leader on the gridiron, and a leader in the classroom. Grant carries a 3.4 GPA, and just like his snaps, grades were never a cause for concern.

"You're not going to go to the next level if you aren't successful in the classroom. I think sometimes that doesn't come to the forefront as much as when people talk about our kids that we have here."

"You can't go anywhere without grades, no matter how talented you are. You have to qualify for the NCAA, you have to have grades to go to the next level."

Playing with some of those next level guys as an All-American has only fueled that fire even more.

"When you go against top level competition, there's no way up, you can't go down from there. You can set yourself straight and see where you can compare too. I'm excited for the future, but you have to take it one step at a time."

One step at a time, from Lincoln, to an All-American, and hopefully, a college scholarship.
