Catholic High School seniors (formerly Bishop Sullivan) have seen a lot in their three years with the football program.
The Crusaders have played IMG twice, seen the football program rise to prominence, and now see the football program go back to more of a local focus as they prep for a full TCIS schedule this fall.
There’s a new head coach in Tommy Austin, who has come over from Greenbrier Christian after the departure of coach Chris Scott.
One thing that hasn’t changed is the interest college coaches have shown in the athletes at the school.
After fielding quite a few college offers, defensive backs Brandon Jones (2020 WR/DB 6-1 185) and Quinton Gregory (2020 DB 5-10 170) made their verbal commitments for college this week. Gregory committed on Wednesday and Jones pulled the trigger on Saturday.
Gregory held offers from Charlotte, Morgan State, Kent State, Liberty and Bryant, but it was the offer from Holy Cross that received in the first week of May that stuck with him.

As for Jones, relationships and a decision made for the future sold him on making a commitment to West Point.
Prior to his commitment, Brandon also held offers from Penn, Columbia, Navy, Howard, Georgetown, and Liberty.
“West Point is a great place to play football and get to be at an elite institution. I know after football I will have a multitude of careers that I can pursue. The coaching staff really welcomed me and were excited about my commitment. The environment in the locker room is like a brotherhood and I can really see myself thriving there,” said Jones.

It also helps that former teammates Noah Knapp and Mondo Walker are already there.
“I talked to them both when I went to visit,” Jones explained. “I’m happy with my decision.”
