Grayson Rose, rising sophomore star
July 13, 2018
Grayson Rose, a sophomore with a business major at Northern Kentucky University, finds the time to balance her academic and athletic career. What Rose does is no easy feat, she said her main concern being a student and an athlete is time management. The key to success is prioritizing one’s time. There’s no room for procrastination here.
Playing basketball since the second grade, Rose has always been an active person. Her involvement in volleyball and basketball in high school gives her an athletic edge. She looks up to no one more than her parents; they are her main supporters.
NKU Assistant Athletics Communications Director Chloe Smith said that Rose “puts the team above herself” and appears to embody a “we over me” attitude when it concerns the team.
Smith commends Rose on her selflessness and her “well-rounded” abilities on the court. Standing at 6-foot-3-inches, Rose is still able to shoot a three-pointer, which is “great for messing up defense,” Smith said.
Rose’s success on the court can not be restricted to her own talents. As a “well-coached” athlete, Rose has the potential to become a “really special player for other players, coaches, and fans to watch in coming years,” Smith said.
According to Rose, her biggest accomplishment as a member of NKU’s women’s basketball team, was beating Green Bay this past season. Rose believes that the most formidable rival is Milwaukee Panthers of University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
