Stepinac teammates Caleb Gilligan-Evans (left) and Vincent Narog (right) have both chosen where they’ll play football in college. For Gilligan-Evans, it was a positive ending to a difficult situation.
Gilligan-Evans has de-committed from Yale and decided he will attend Holy Cross. The senior running back originally picked Yale, but his future became uncertain once the Bulldogs hired a new coach, Tony Reno, in January. The school was bound to keep its commitment to Gilligan-Evans. Instead, he has found another option in Holy Cross, the alma mater of former Stepinac star Tyler Nugent. The Crusaders finished 6-6 last season playing in the Patriot League.
Narog, a senior wide receiver, has committed to Sacred Heart. The Pioneers finished 5-6 last season playing in the Northeast Conference. Narog is the fourth Stepinac player in the Class of 2012 to commit to a Division I program, joining Gilligan-Evans, Austin Taps (Penn) and Przemyslaw Popek (Stony Brook).
The players are expected to sign with their schools this week.
