After falling to 0-2 to start the season, Christ the King High School’s football program is looking to rebound and make a name for itself this season, its first playing at the AAA level in the Catholic High School Football League.
The Royals have sent out a young roster every week against stiffer competition than they’ve been accustomed to in previous years. The team has just four seniors this year on a 30-man roster, so it is forced to start underclassmen at most positions.
“We have the talent, it’s competing that’s the issue, moving up from AA to AAA,” said ninth-year head coach Jason Brown. “It’s an experiment and we want to see how well we can handle the competition.”
Christ the King is going to rely on the veteran leadership from their seniors to improve as a team. After losing 27-0 to Chaminade in Week 1, senior captain Nicholas Hunter said there are a lot of areas for the team to improve.
