Pope John Paul is a great school. They cannot compete however at the MBA,Ensworth,Brentwood Academy level. I have no idea why he decided on Nashville Christian,but he must have been very frustrated with his prospects at Pope John Paul

The article said he cited family reasons. Maybe NCS offered him more money than what JP2 could pay him or maybe he has children enrolled at NCS?

The rumblings at NCS have been to get more competitive in football like they once were many years ago.
