Joey Grosso Scholarship Fund

Joey Grosso attended Pope John Paul II in Boca Raton where as a senior he had a 4.0 GPA, made 103 tackles, eight sacks, three forced fumbles and was an All-Area selection. Joey had many offers coming out of high school to play at big time football programs but, like always Joey looked at the big picture and decided to attend the University of Pennsylvania an Ivy League school. Joey, graduated from the College of Arts and Sciences in May with honors with an eye on attending law school, he was a three-year letter winner for the Quakers and played in every game over the last three seasons. He was a member of the 2010 and 2012 Ivy League championship teams and finished his career with 43 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, a fumble recovery and an interception in 31 career games.

After college Joey was accepted to law school at the University of Miami. Growing up Joey and his brother Nick were die hard UM Hurricance football fans and with one year of eligibility Joey tried out for the Hurricanes and was signed to the roster as a walk-on.

To celebrate his lifelong dream he went scuba diving for mini lobster season with his brother Nick. Something happened tragically and Joey lost his life on July 30th. Joey was a great young man that has been taken from us way to soon and his light will continue to shine through the people he touched and knew him. God has a beautiful angel on his team now.

In honor of Joey and the way he lived his life to the fullest my wife and I will be starting a scholarship in his name. It will go to an outgoing high school senior from Pope John Paul II where Joey attended and who excelled in academics, sports and is of high character. I’m asking for your generosity and compassion to help our family while we all grieve and to help us keep Joey Grosso’s name alive through this scholarship.
