Call him Mr. Touchdown

Miner wide receiver Ashton Gronewold was named to a pair of All-America teams for his play during the 2007 season, making him the first player in the university football program’s 115-year history to earn All-America honors in three different seasons.


Gronewold, who was selected to participate in January’s Valero Cactus Bowl – a Division II all-star game – was named to the Associated Press Little All-America first team and to the Daktronics Division II second team after another record-breaking season at Missouri S&T. He earned both awards as an all-purpose back.
A regional finalist for the 2007 Harlon Hill Award, Gronewold finished third in NCAA Division II in all-purpose yards for the season with a school record 2,250, thanks in large part to his 87 receptions for 1,009 yards and his average of 28 yards per kickoff return. He had a total of 953 yards in kickoff returns.
During the season, Gronewold broke the NCAA single-game record with 295 yards in kickoff returns and became the seventh player in Division II history to return two kickoffs for a touchdown in the same game when he brought two kicks back for scores against Tiffin.
Gronewold is the holder of nearly every receiving, kickoff return and all-purpose yardage record in school history.
He had totals of 278 catches and 3,708 yards. His 58 career touchdowns included five returns for scores and his totals of 1,828 kickoff return yards and 5,992 all-purpose yards were both school records. Prior to this season, Gronewold had earned post-season All-America honors from Football Gazette, D2Football.com and the Associated Press. Gronewold is a senior in engineering management.
