Scott Grantham wasn’t nearly as comfortable this time last year.
Before the start of the 2007 season, Grantham had to win a tight three-way battle for the quarterback job at Tarleton State. After being named the starter over David Durrell and Logan Cordes, the NCAA Division I transfer from New Mexico State - who hardly anyone knew - went on to pass for 2,884 yards and 24 touchdowns.
“It was tough coming in as a transfer, especially as a QB,” Grantham said. “I just kept my head down and worked hard to win the starting job, and fortunately I did.” Now, everyone knows Grantham, and everyone preparing to start fall practices on Aug. 7 knows there is no quarterback controversy at Tarleton. The El Paso native who starred at EP Franklin High School won’t have to worry about fighting for the starting job as a sophomore, and can’t wait to get work.
