After two consecutive stellar seasons at wide receiver, UMR senior Ashton Gronewold has earned numerous pre-season honors for the 2007 football season.

Gronewold has been named to four pre-season All-America teams after catching more than 150 passes in the last two years to rank among the national leaders in that category. He was named to the pre- season squads by Lindy’s Football magazine as an all-purpose player, then to Street and Smith’s, Football Gazette’s and D2Football.com’s squads at wide receiver.

Either position would be applicable for him, as he compiled a school record 1,788 all-purpose yards during the 2006 campaign. Last year’s Great Lakes Football Conference “Offensive Player of the Year” broke 12 school records over the course of the 2006 campaign, including marks with 78 catches for 1,120 yards.

At the start of the season, Gronewold holds UMR career records for receptions (191), receiving yards (2,699), receiving touchdowns (39) and overall touchdowns scored (42).
