Roselle Park, NJ
Junior: Grob started off well and had at least an even chance to wrest the first string job away from Don Patrician but an injured arm kept him out of seven on Miami’s first 10 battles and allowed him only short action in the next two. Charlie once seemed on his way with back to back 11 point performances against Miami of Ohio and Oklahoma City, but he slipped up again and not until an eight point showing against FSU in the season finale did he lend much help to the team.
