But back when Jersey Shore was nonexistent (can you remember those glorious days?), Ryan Grant was actually the face of Jersey! USA Today honored him as the 2000 Jersey Player of the Year: a huge honor for this talented three sport athlete who competed in football, basketball, and track. Here he is as a serious-looking youngster.
Ryan Grant still lives in New Jersey during the off-season. He lives in Edgewater, a borough of roughly 9,500. Wonder what he thinks of Snooki?
