Head Boys Lacrosse Coach

Email Coach Grant Jr. | 303.471.3069

Appointed 2015. Coach Grant, Jr. has achieved unparalleled success in lacrosse, having been a dominant force in professional lacrosse for the past 15 years. His passion for the game of lacrosse was handed down from his Hall of Fame father: John Grant, Sr. was a professional with a World Championship of his own. To have his father as his idol gave him the drive and determination to be one of the game’s all-time greats.

The lacrosse pedigree extends past the playing surface as Coach Jr. has followed in his father’s footsteps and spent his adult life coaching lacrosse all over the world. The love of the game is only surpassed by the love he shares with his wife and high school sweetheart, Raygen, and their five-year-old daughter, Gabrayel.

Coach Jr. has felt a mighty tug on his heart to give all that he has to Valor and he is extremely blessed to be able to help mold our young athletes on a full-time basis.
