Grant did a great job making some big plays in the passing game. He led our offense and when he works our offense he is as good of a quarterback you will find,” said Fox. “I am so proud of Drew (Lauer), when he got injured last year they said it was a year and a half of recovery time. He came back in less than a year and to come back and have a big day today was huge.” BUIES CREEK, N.C. – A complete team performance propelled the Drake University football team to rout Campbell, 45-10, Saturday afternoon at Barker-Lane Stadium in Buies Creek, N.C.
