On Jan. 13, Grumley entered the Clarion record books, becoming the 30th player in school history to net 1,000 career points. He achieved the feat in front of the home crowd against Gannon University.

2017-2018 also saw Grumley set new career highs, most notably his 30-point effort against Mercyhurst on January 8th, a new personal best. A career-high 10 rebounds were achieved twice during this past season, and his 9 assists against Penn State Greater Allegheny also set a new high mark.
