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.
