Amherst's Garrett Groshek adjusting to change

State championship QB is now a running back

Amherst's Garrett Groshek adjusting...

MADISON - Garrett Groshek was one of the most successful high school quarterbacks in Wisconsin.

He led Amherst to the WIAA State championship in 2015.

He accepted an offer to walk-on at the University of Wisconsin, but quickly, things changed.

Groshek was asked to become  running back and he's been adjusting to the new role.

"The mental parts came a little easier," Groshek said, "but it's the physical part, having to get to the right spot, getting the right reads off stuff and it's really been trying to figure out how to play running back again."

Groshek says fellow running back Taiwan Deal, who's been injured this spring, has been helping in the transition.

"He's with me all the time, every single drill, every single rep. He knows what he's talking about, so it's good to have that guy as an extra coach when Coach (John) Settles is down with someone else, Taiwan helps me out."
