SALT LAKE CITY – The Bountiful High School football team announced the cancer diagnosis of offensive/defensive lineman Roman Groves.

The Redhawks shared the news via the team’s Twitter account on January 7.

“With permission from the family, we are reaching out to our football community. One of our family has battle off the field. Roman Groves has recently been diagnosed with cancer, and we are asking for prayers for him and his family,” Bountiful football posted.

Groves plays multiple positions for the Bountiful football team, including offensive line, defensive line, and long snapper.
