Coach Maisonneuve on Grinstead: “Parker is a local talent that will be coming to us from Cincinnati. He has the ability and skill set to play multiple rolls in the midfield. He has a great feel for the game and has a really good engine to play both sides of the ball. Parker is one of those players that makes everyone around him better. His drive and desire to fine-tune his game are attributes that have and will continue to set him apart. We are happy Parker is staying in the state to become a Buckeye next fall.”
