Husker RB Grant to Receive Top NJCAA Honor Tonight

Nebraska running back Anthony Grant will receive a top honor from the NJCAA tonight.  Grant will be recognized as the top male student-athlete across all sports in the NJCAA ranks at an awards ceremony in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The honor caps a decorated final season for Grant at the New Mexico Military Institute.  The Buford, Georgia native rushed for 1,730 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2021, helping the Broncos to the national championship.  In two seasons at the school, he rushed for over 2,500 yards and 28 scores. 

Grant enrolled at NU in January.  He had six carries for 69 yards in the Red-White Spring Game in April.
