BGC Preview 2021: Holy Cross Knights

Depth at the skill positions crucial for team in search of more playoff success

KSAT 12's Big Game Coverage stops by practice at Holy Cross High School, where the Knights return some impressive players at important skill positions and look for another deep playoff run in TAPPS Division III.

SAN ANTONIO – After coming up a game short of advancing to the TAPPS Division III state championship game, Holy Cross is excited for a chance at another deep playoff run.

The Knights finished the 2020 season with a 6-3 overall record and rolled all the way through to the state semifinals. Dynamic quarterback Jordan Battles led the charge on offense, but he has since graduated. Even without Battles, there’s still plenty of experience on the roster on both sides of the ball for head coach Mike Harrison to work with, and every player earned invaluable experience in the playoffs. Marcos Jimenez-Cedillo highlights a deep wide receiver core, while two-way player Amir Ali will look to have an even bigger impact this year.

The Knights will also play home games on campus under the lights for the first time in program history. They will open their season at home against Boerne Geneva on Thursday, Aug. 26 at 7:45 p.m.
