Injuries and the pandemic have altered Brendan Grimes' progression, but he's one of the most talented players in the country.

Grimes burst into the national spotlight after leading Boys' Latin to the MIAA "A" Conference championship game as a sophomore. His junior year was cut short due to injury and then he missed his final year of high school lacrosse due to the global pandemic.

He returned to field in 2021, and was the only freshman to start a a game for Johns Hopkins, finishing the year with eight goals. He started 2022 with hat tricks in two of Hopkins' first three games before missing a month of the season due to injury. He returned in late March and now the 6-foot-4 midfielder is poised to continue his comeback with the U.S. team.
