Benilde St. Margaret's Darnell McCrea was a solid two-way player for the Red Knights a year ago as a sophomore starter. This season, he made a position change and has caught the eye of more than one college football program.
The Red Knights finished the 2019 season with a 9-1 record.
"It was a great year," McCrea said. "We had a great team that bonded well off the field. That led to success on the field. This year was fun."
BSM won many of their games at the line of scrimmage.
"We loved to run the ball," McCrea explained. "We had a great offensive line and were physical. On defense, Coach (Jon) Hanks tells us to play fast and physical, and even if we mess up, mess up going one hundred percent."
McCrea was an integral part of both lines.
"(On offense) I think I am best at pulling. We pulled both our guards a lot. That is where I was best. On defense, I usually played left defensive end. I think I am a good pass rusher."
A two-year starter – last year, McCrea played defensive end and offensive tackle.
