Pasco’s Janarion Grant picks up offer from USF; John Baxter gets Wayne St. offer

In what is sure to be first of many, Pasco junior receiver Janarion Grant picked up a Division I scholarship offer Tuesday, this one coming locally from USF.
Pirates coach Tom McHugh added in a text message that senior lineman John Baxter received an offer from Wayne State, a Division II college in Detroit, MI.
Grant, arguably Pasco’s most talented athlete and state champ in the long jump, had 22 total touchdowns, including 14 receiving for the 13-1 Pirates. Grant, who also plays cornerback and added a 101-yard interception return against Jesuit in the region final, has also seen time at running back and quarterback during games.
Grant will more than likely take over at QB for Pasco next season, as McHugh and staff will probably install more of a spread-option, wildcat formation for Grant’s immense speed.
Baxter was part of an underrated offensive line that allowed senior quarterback Jacob Guy pass for 42 touchdowns and 2,672 yards, both county records. Baxter also notched 26 tackles and three sacks at defensive tackle.
These two players were part of one of the best football teams in Pasco County history, marching to a state semifinal, Pasco’s second in four seasons. However, Pasco lost heartbreakingly in triple overtime 41-38 to Crawfordville Wakulla on Dec. 9.
