Brian Garrity has played football with his high school team, the Catholic Central Crusaders for the past two years as a wide receiver.

The kicker/punter will also be playing his second season with the London Junior Mustangs in the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) this upcoming summer.

“My goals for the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) would be to make it onto the West region team and learn as much as I can from the coaching staff and hopefully gain some exposure to anyone interested in me for the future,” said Brian.

Aside from football, the Crusader plays other school sports like basketball, badminton and soccer.

Daily basketball practices and training for soccer throughout the week help him stay in shape and on top of his athletic ability.

“During the offseason for football, I can also go to the park in my neighbourhood with my brother and work on field goals, punting and kickoffs,” added the Crusader.

Brian’s football role model is his brother, Neil Garrity, who was the reason he wanted to start playing football after watching Neil play for Catholic Central.

“I saw him on the field and he made it look like a lot of fun,” explained the Crusader. “He’s also a kicker and plays wide receiver as well.”

At Catholic Central, Brian did not have a coach that knew a lot about kicking specifically, so he owes most of his knowledge to Neil.

“He’s currently in grade 13 at CCH, so I hope to continue the Garrity brother legacy when he moves on next year,” added Brian.

Moreover, in lines of a professional role model, it would be Marquette King, the punter for the Oakland Raiders.

“He can hit 70+ yard punts which is pretty amazing and I think it would be awesome to have his job playing football for a living,” commented the Crusader.

Brian loves to play football because his teams have always had a very welcoming atmosphere and it seems like your team is your second family.

“Also, as a kicker, it’s cool to know that the few points you add on the scoreboard could make the difference between a loss and a win for your team,” explained the Crusader.
