Racking up 50-plus goals in each of the three seasons, the South Jersey native is your typical do-it-all midfielder. At 6’1 and 185 pounds, the 4-star Harvard commit has the size, strength, and stamina to affect the game in several ways from either side of the field, or even from the attack position like he was in club ball with LI Legacy. Offensively, whether inverted at X or going 1-on-1 from up top, Grimley can use his speed and quick change of direction to blow past defenders with either hand. One of the best parts about his ability to create space with his dodging is not only that he can stick it in any corner on the run, but he also dodges with his head up, creating chances for his teammates to score. He possesses great stick skills and can score in a variety of ways like behind-the-back or back-hand, and stretches the defense out with his ability to load up from the outside. Grimley puts a ton of work in on the defensive side as well, with great ground ball skills and physicality when riding on clears, while also having the quickness to stay with his matchup and create turnovers for his team.
