Grant Charles Jarman is a multifaceted athlete with a knack for leading a team. He will take the reigns of the Rampants football team as the starting quarterback this season and be a pivotal piece on the baseball diamond as a senior. High School preps writer Jake Keator spoke with Jarman about his history as an athlete and what it takes to be a leader.

Q: What originally got you into sports?

A: “When I was young, my dad would always play wiffleball with me and my younger brother Wade in the backyard. He grew up loving baseball so naturally I grew up loving it too.”

Q: You spent a lot of time playing baseball, but when did you decide to add football to the list?

A: I was going into my sophomore year and my dad thought it would look better to colleges if I played another sport. Honestly, I didn't want to play football at all, but as soon as I started to get the hang of it, I loved it. I love my coaches and they do so much for me and the team, they put so much into it.”

Q: You've spent a lot of your summer playing American Legion baseball with Post 39. What is it like to have to now add summer football practices to your daily routine?

A: It’s different, you know? I’m still playing Legion as of now, and it’s a lot, but I manage it. I have football in the mornings and baseball in the afternoons, but I still work hard for both teams.”

Q: What is it like being the leader of the football team after a rough year last year? Is there a different mentality to this Rampants football team compared to last season?

A: Being a leader on this team means everything. We've been working harder this year than last year. We have more people joining in, and together we are becoming more of a family, and we push each other. The mentality this year is ring-chasing. If we work hard every day this year, it’ll pay off for us for sure.”

Q: Does your style of leadership change on the football field compared to the baseball diamond?

A: There isn't really any differences. I still pick up my teammates no matter what.”
