Get To Know Your Orange Man: #38, K Alex Grossman

Holding down the reserve kicker spot

NCAA Football: Syracuse at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Alex Grossman

Position: Kicker

Year: (Redshirt) Senior

Height: 5'9"

Weight: 155

Hometown: Woodbury, N.Y.

High School: Syosset High School

2016 Stats: He redshirted after walking on last year. He was the reserve placekicker.

2017 Projections: He’ll probably still be a reserve. With Cole Murphy and Sterling Hofrichter competing at kicker and Nolan Cooney holding down backup punter. He’ll be in uniform but probably will only see time in an emergency.

How'd He Get Here?: He was just chillin’ like a normal student and then decided to walk on in spring of 2016.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say?: He really wasn’t recruited

Twitterfeed: @zander009

Tweets Of Wonder: He doesn’t tweet anymore. But happy birthday OBJ!

What movie would Dino Babers recommend for him?: A friendly Lion is just there for show... until he tries to break out and be something bigger. Thats what Alex the Lion does in Madagascar. Maybe Grossman will be an underdog and make it out of the cage of a walk on.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Not a lot out there on him, but he only missed one PAT in his senior year of high school and was 4/4 on field goals.
