Seeking a fourth straight X League championship, the Fujitsu Frontiers acquired an exceptional weapon in young American Samajie Grant this year.

The 24-year-old is listed as a running back and he described the position as "my love." And in Fujitsu's 31-13 win over the Elecom Kobe Finies in the playoff semifinals at Fujitsu Stadium Kawasaki on Saturday, Grant shined on the ground and amassed 171 yards rushing using his elusive steps, capitalizing on his ability to use lead blockers.

But his genuine value is seen in his Swiss Army knife-like versatility. Although he did not make a reception on Saturday, Grant lined up as a receiver, and even attempted a pass at the end of the game.
