2007 Second-Team All-Patriot League
Cantello on Grant:
"Andrew has the greatest range of any runner on our team. He ran the 1,500 in 3:49, the 3,000 in 8:23 and placed in the 10,000 at the league championship as a plebe. His reticent leadership is manifested in action - not in words. Great things are expected of him this year. Most of what we expect from him is a fraction of what he expects from himself."
