Grier Named BLC Pistol Coach

GRIER NAMED BLC PISTOL COACH

As Blue Lights College continues to expand sports offerings to its student body, Josh Grier has been named the first coach for the Thoroughbreds’ Shooting Sports team. Grier is a 14-year veteran of the Apex Police Department, currently serving as Training Officer and overseeing in-service training, recruiting, and teaching for the department. Prior to serving and protecting in the Peak City, Grier served as a Military Police Training Officer in the Marine Corps for 4 ½ years, training MPs in His duties took him around the world to such posts as Okinawa, Guantanamo Bay, and Camp Lejuene, where he was a controlled-custody drill instructor for all branches of the military. “I love teaching,” says Grier, who is also an instructor at Wake Tech. “I believe we can make (law enforcement) a whole lot better by building those bridges that we as a community have burned over the past 20-40 years. I feel that getting some of these kids in (to BLC) and getting them involved in law enforcement will go a long way toward building a lot of those bridges.” Blue Lights College will compete as a member of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) in pistol competition against regional rivals including Clemson and Bob Jones University. Grier says recruiting is already underway, and he plans to have the team ready to go this fall. Any high school student who would like more information or to be recruited is encouraged to call the BLC Athletics Department at 919-589-2540.
