Frank Grant


Football/Track & Field (1968-72)
Inaugural Class (2009)
Era: Southern Colorado State College

Frank Grant became the first Southern Colorado State College football player to enjoy success in the National Football League, playing for seven seasons with the Washington Redskins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, being named all-NFC in 1976. 

Grant's pro career was built by an impressive collegiate career at SCSC as a wide receiver, setting all the school's receiving records, which remained on the books for 15 years. 

Grant is one of just two male student-athletes in CSU-Pueblo history (along with fellow 2009 Inaugural Inducee, Pat Bekeza) to earn All-American honors in two different sports, excelling a football All-American in 1971 and a track and field All-American in 1972.  Frank was also a two-time first-team all-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference selection in football.
