Grothe to continue career close to home

Former USF quarterback Matt Grothe will continue his playing career not far from home.
The Lakeland native has agreed to sign with the United Football League’s Orlando Tuskers.
“It’s like high school all over again,” Grothe told his hometown newspaper, the Lakeland Ledger, late Thursday night. “Everybody that I’ve known growing up can come and watch me play and hopefully [I’ll] start a fan base in Orlando.”
Grothe, who missed most of his senior season last year due to a knee injury, recently particiapted in the Bucs’ rookie camp but was not signed.
He also drew interest from the Canadian Football League, but following a recent workout with Tuskers coach Jay Gruden, Grothe’s professional career will start in the states.
