NIU Quarterback DeMarcus Grady Joins Huskie Basketball Team


According to an NIU press release today, junior quarterback DeMarcus Grady started practicing with the basketball team yesterday, immediately after returning from the bowl trip. According to the release, Grady was a second team all-area and first team all-conference choice in basketball as a senior and helped East Grand Rapids to the state finals in 2006. His basketball career apparently has the blessing of interim coach Matukewicz and new football head coach Doeren, but he's still planning to be back with the football team this summer and fall.
