I dedicate this column to a guy named Grant Boxleitner.
Grant is a big-shot news anchor at Suncoast News Network in Florida.
But a few decades ago, he was a freelance sports reporter for a paper I worked at in McHenry County. He was a really enthusiastic young man back in the day. Maybe over-enthusiastic at times. But that was still cool.
Once, we sent him to a Thursday night Northern Illinois University football game as the Huskies hosted an opponent people heard of: Kansas State.
