Charlotte, NC (October 26, 2018) – The All-American Bowl officially presented Harding University High School football player, Quavaris Crouch, with his game jersey Thursday morning. The bowl, scheduled for January 5, 2019, will feature the top 100 high school senior football players and is the most-watched high school sporting event every year. Viewers can tune in annually on NBC.
The Harding Rams are on a two-game win streak heading in to the final weeks of regular season play. And while Crouch has been sidelined with an injury for a majority of the season, his Head Coach, Van Jones, still relies on him as a big leader for this team.
“He is the best pure athlete that I have ever seen and had the pleasure of coaching,” said Jones. “But what makes him special is he’s humble and his character off the field. That’s what makes him the quality young man he is.”
Early in his high school career, Crouch never really saw himself as a vocal leader for the Rams. Since then, he has developed key relationships with his teammates encouraging them to be the best they can be each and every day. When asked about what the All-American honor and recognition means to him, Crouch explained:
“The honor means a lot! I don’t want to get too excited because I still have a lot of work to do, but I do cherish the moment and just try to have fun with it. It’s a great honor to be an All-American.”
The next game for the Rams is scheduled for Friday, November 2 vs. Olympic High School. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00PM.
