Catching up With Grant DeBenedictis
Debenedictis has been to the Michigan campus several times but none officially. However, he indicated that may soon change. "I'm going to the Ohio State game on an unoffical visit, then I'll probably take my official visit the weekend of December 5th and 6th. It's not fianlized yet but I'll talk about it more with the coaches this week."
The big man informed GBW he had just receieved an invitation to play in the CaliFlorida Bowl, which will be held at Moorpark College in Moorpark, Calif. on January 2nd. Debenedicitis will be matched up against possible future teammates in De La Salle WR Cameron Colvin, Fremont OL/DL Thomas Herring, and Pomona standouts LB/DL Eugene Germany and DB Keston Cheathem. But in this game, they will be opponents. "I received the invitation and talked to the Michigan coaches about it before I accepted," Debenedicits said. "I wanted to make sure they were ok with me playing. If they were worried about me getting injured I wouldn't go, but they told me to go ahead...that I had worked hard and deserved it."
Debenedicits said he's excited about his second trip to the Golden State and the festivities surrounding the event. "I was out in California last year visiting some schools," he said. "We get in on December 28th to start practicing. They're also going to take us to a Clippers game, an NFL game, and to Universal Studios."
St. Andrews has had a disappointing season by their standarts, going 3-5 with one game left. Debenedictis attributes this to the level of competition scheduled this year. "We scheduled some of the best teams around this year," he said. "As for my season, I don't know my stats but I play every down on offense and about 3/4 on defense. I have a couple of ten-tackle games. I had a little bit of an injury to my knee, but nothing serious though. I was 100% last week so everything is fine there."
