August 31, 2014 | TELEGRAM FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Grasis gains ground for WPI WORCESTER — WPI's opposing defenses should take note. Senior running back Zach Grasis, who powered his way to more than 1,200 rushing yards last year, added about 15 pounds of pure muscle to his 6-foot frame during the offseason. He'll begin 2014, the 125th year of WPI football, around 230. "He doesn't look like a tailback to me," WPI coach Chris Robertson said. "He looks like a Division 1 middle linebacker. But that's his build, and that's his strength." Grasis, the former David Prouty High star from East Brookfield, earned first-team All-Liberty League honors last fall after rushing for 1,214 yards, the third-highest total in WPI history, and a team-best 11 touchdowns. >>
August 22, 2014 | TELEGRAM FEATURE: WPI's Attila Kara looks to make impact WORCESTER — Defensive line projects as WPI's strongest and deepest position this season, and junior Attila Kara of Douglas hopes to figure in the Engineers' front line mix. "My goal is to play more this season," said the 6-foot-5, 225-pound Kara, who had a limited role in 2013, "but it's not my job to ask questions, 'Who's playing? Who's not playing?' It's just about us winning." "We're a very tight team," Kara said. "We have to translate that onto the field, do what we need to do, just work hard and be focused every single day." >>
