T.K. Gorman Crusaders
Head Coach: Daryl Hayes
District: TAPPS Division IV
School Colors: Green, White, Black
Stadium Address: 1405 E Southeast Loop 323, Tyler, TX 75701
2021 Record: 1-9
Notes: Gorman has won just two games in two seasons and the Crusaders are looking to change that trend in 2022. The team has plenty of experience with 10 starters back on offense and 10 starters back on defense. With that many returning they have a good group of leaders. The concern at the smaller TAPPS division is always depth. Players to watch: “Senior Josh Hayes; the team leader in sacks, tackles for loss, and total tackles; returns as a two-way All-District (and All-East Texas) starter at OT/DT. Senior Andre Williams, an all-district honoree, returns as the team’s leading rusher and scorer. Senior Aaron Ekwuruke, the largest player on the roster at 6′3″ 285, looks to start at OG/NG. Senior Foster Morales, the team’s second leading tackler, looks to return as an All-District linebacker. Senior Alex Barriga, an All-District Linebacker, will return as a two-way starter. Sophomore Ryan Richbourg, an All-District defensive back, will return as a two-way starter. Senior Matthew McKnight will return as a two-way starter at OL/DE. Senior Aiden Culpepper will return for his 4th consecutive year as the starting center. Senior Jorge Garcia, leading returning receiver, will return as a two-way starter. Senior Nate LeBlanc will return as a two-way starter at receiver and DB. Senior John Eltife had an outstanding season at CB last year, we are excited about his return.”
