Grant Quarterback Andre Broadous (no. 7) runs the ball against Southridge on Sept. 22, 2006. Grant won the game 28-14.

Located in the Hollywood district of NE Portland, Grant High School is the largest school in the Portland School District. They were a football powerhouse back in the 1940's and 50's, but haven't had much success since. While they were expected to field their best team in years this season, nobody expected them to play as well as they have. With their victory this past Friday (Oct. 27) against favored Lincoln, they maintained their undefeated record (8-0) and secured the PIL 6A title. Lincoln (7-1) will probably make the state playoffs as well. However, Jesuit High School still stands between either team and the state championship. That game will be played Dec. 9 in Eugene.

Incidentally, you may well have seen Grant High School—it was the location for the filming of Mr. Holland's Opus.
