I would like to extend my congratulations to the rest of the 2000 Pioneer Senior class. During our four year tenure, our senior class compiled a 27-12 record (tied for the best class record in Grinnell football history!). Although the 2000 season was rather disappointing, the everlasting memories and good times completely overshadow the hard (and close) losses we endured during our 5-4 season (5-5 Overall). On a final note, I would like to give myself mad-props for an excellent effort during the 2000 season! I was selected as part of the MWC All-Conference squad as an Honorable Mention. Not too shabby. Further more, I was the recepient of two teams awards: Most Valuable Offensive Linemen in 2000 and Most Valuable Overall Lineman in 2000.
