Grant, a 4-year starter on attack while attending the University of Maryland, has embraced his role not only as an All-American but as a role model for all players. A 2011 team captain, Catalino proved to be an outstanding leader for Maryland.

Coach Dave Cottle, former Maryland head coach, describes Grant as a player who “carried himself with class and always was an outstanding student and teammate. [He] worked extremely hard in the weight room and constantly worked on his skill development to become an All-American player. [Also], he became one of the best extra man players I have ever coached and became a “great student of the game”. He was a leader who always wanted to know why we did things so that he could understand them to help other players understand. It wouldn’t surprise me if [he] became an outstanding coach someday because he was so analytical as a player.”

He maintained a 3.44/4.00 GPA in Finance in the Robert E. Smith School of Business, which was ranked No. 9 among all public universities by U.S. News & World Report. Other academic accomplishments include; 2x Academic All-American; Dean’s list: 2008-2011; ACC Academic Honor Roll: 2007-2011; Athletic Directors Honor Roll: 2008, 2009, 2011; and a member of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars.

Grant continued his lacrosse career in the MLL. In his first MLL season, Grant tied the single-game scoring MLL record with 9 goals and set rookie 2 point scoring record in the MLL.
