EXTRA POINTS

  • Geneo draws inspiration from his father's fight with cancer. In 2009, his father and hero, Eugene Grissom, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer. "He's just always been the source of my inspiration, my drive of wanting to be just better. Be a better person," Geneo Grissom told the Providence Journal. "He worked so hard to put food on the table for us."
  • They also bonded over music. Geneo Grissom traded in his drum sticks for football pads a while ago, but thanks to his father he's musically talented. He learned how to single out notes and play by ear on the keyboard and drums, his instrument of choice. 
  • "We made each other a promise. I said, ‘If you take care of the football, I'll take care of this cancer,'" Eugene Grissom said. "So far we've both owned up to it."
