JCA Hilltopper Football Recruiting Questionnaire

“The Catholic High (JCA) football program, which stands for honesty, integrity, loyalty and genuine love for each other, I was so glad to be a part of it. The Victory Light is on for all the right reasons.”
– Hall of Fame Head Coach Gordie Gillespie
