6 speed grinds from low to 1st gear

hey there this is my first post. i have a 2001 f450 7.3 with a 6 speed with a low gear. when i start off in low gear then shift into 1st gear, the tranny makes a grinding sound. could that be a worn synchro. any answers will be greatly appreciated.

When does it grind, everytime, at low engine speeds, high engine speeds?
