After booting the football for Lawrence High, Grant Glasgow’s new gridiron home will be just a few lengthy kickoffs north, at the University of Kansas.
Glasgow announced this week his plans to join KU football next year as a walk-on.
A senior at LHS, Glasgow handled the Lions’ kickoffs, field goals and extra points. He went 8-for-9 on field goals, with a long of 48, and delivered a game-winning kick in the final seconds of the Lions’ victory at Olathe North.
Glasgow went 48-for-50 on extra points, and the two that went down as misses were blocked. He averaged 67 yards on his kickoffs.
In a note he posted to Twitter, Glasgow thanked his family, mentors and supporters, as well as LHS head coach Clint Bowen — a former KU player and longtime assistant — for helping him with the process.
Glasgow also thanked KU special teams coordinator Jake Schoonover for extending him the chance to play college football.
The KU football roster currently has two other players from LHS: running back Devin Neal and walk-on linebacker Cole Mondi, both of whom were freshmen in 2021.
