Penn State Football QB Commit Ethan Grunkemeyer dazzles in STELLAR season opener

Ohio’s Olentangy high school and the home of Penn State Football’s 2024 quarterback commit Ethan Grunkemeyer began the season Friday night against Ohio’s Toledo Whitmer high school.

In a dominant 46-35 win that once saw Olentangy up 43-21, Grunkemeyer continued to dazzle as he has since he broke onto the national scene near the end of his junior season.

According to Dillon Davis of the Delaware Gazette, Grunkemeyer began the night with an 84-yard touchdown pass on the first play from scrimmage.

Later in the first half, per Davis, Grunkemeyer helped Olentangy regain the lead of the game with an 81-yard, 11 play drive that ended in an 8-yard touchdown run by Grunkemeyer.

Less than 4 minutes later, Grunkemeyer lead a 92-yard drive in 59 seconds, ending the half on a 14-yard touchdown pass with four seconds remaining. Davis reported Grunkemeyer threw for 288 yards and two touchdowns in the first half and added 27 yards and a touchdown rushing.


In the second half, Grunkemeyer led his team to two more touchdown drives to blow the game open, including a drive that ended with a 26-yard touchdown pass.

After the game, Davis caught up with Ethan Grunkemeyer to discuss the game. Listen in the link below.

If Grunkemeyer can continue to play like he did Friday night, his historic rise in the rankings should continue.

The four-star prospect has already jumped up 578 spots in the 247 sports composite rankings since April. Grunkemeyer’s season continues next Friday when Olentangy travels to face Ohio’s Medina high school.
