Grupe has an athletic frame and throws with easier effort. His fastball sat 87-89 with some downward plane and late run to it. Change-up was thrown with some armspeed and had heavy sink, running 77-78. Slowed arm to throw his curveball, pitch had 11/5 action, running 69-72. Filled the strike zone with his fastball. Change-up was outstanding, getting swing and misses and bad contact. Curveball was off and Woodgrove was aggressive attacking a fastball that they were geared up for and hit Grupe well, taking the ball up the middle and the other way as a team approach. 
Preseason All-State 2/17/18

Curveball was 70-72 with some armspeed and late sharp 11/5 break. Change-up was 77-79 with good armspeed and some late run to it.
