The Grizzell Family originally felt they were moving to Park City, Utah as a temporary escape from the COVID-19 pandemic. It worked, and as it turns out, it was, but the lives of brothers Trond and Max Grizzell will never be the same, in a positive way. The Grizzells left San Marino and headed east in July, 2020 when the pandemic increased in intensity. They continued their schooling at Park City High School snd were able to immediately continue their football careers. Trond, who is now 20, and Max, who is 18, were a junior and freshman at Park City when they relocated. Trond was originally recruited by Dixie State but soon entered the radar of the University of California and coach Justin Wilcox. Now a junior, Trond has cracked the Bears’ starting lineup at wide receiver and is making his mark on the program. Max, a freshman at Willamette University, which is located in Salem, Oregon, is playing quarterback for the Bearcats but is considering entering the transfer portal. He has not ruled out Cal as a potential destination.
California is 5-6 this season and squares off with UCLA at the Rose Bowl this Saturday evening at 7:30 p.m. A large contingency of Trond’s friends and family members are expected to attend.
Older brother Max Grizzell, who grew up in San Marino, is playing quarterback at Wilamette University, where he is a freshman.
