Crusaders selected as HSGC Team of the Week after 41-7 victory


By Cameron Mellor

November 26, 2013



Canisius High School was impressive this season in victory; dominant may be a more accurate term.  The Crusaders had rattled off six shut out victories this season while holding opponents in their two other victories to a combined total of 24 points and outscoring them by 73 points.


In their finale this season, Canisius convincingly handled rival St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute in the MMAA Championship game, 41-7, on perhaps their biggest stage of the season.  For their efforts in repeating as MMAA Champions, the Crusaders have been selected as the HSGC National Team of the Week.



“It’s always great to beat your rival, especially for the championship,” CHS head coach Rich Robbins said.  “It was particularly great to do it this time, at Ralph Wilson Stadium, in front of our whole city, on a televised game.”


The game against St. Joe’s, that took place at the Buffalo Bills stadium, was never really close as the Crusaders stomped out to a 21-0 halftime lead behind three scores from running back Qadree Ollison.  While the Marauders would score early in the second half, Canisius would answer back with a touchdown throw from quarterback Jake Loucks to Ryan Richards, extending their lead back to 21 points.


Ollison would thwart any attempt at a comeback as he scored two more times, once in the third and once in the fourth quarter, giving him five rushing scores on the day.


“On the biggest stage, in the biggest game, (Ollison) had a great game,” Robbins said.  “He’s a three-year varsity player, and he was very important to us over these years.  He had a great game running the ball, and he was successful all year long for us.  He couldn’t be a better guy.”


Ollison, going to the University of Pittsburgh next season, finished the game with 234 yards on just 20 carries and his five touchdowns.  In his career against St. Joseph’s, Ollison has now scored 13 touchdowns and run for 380 yards against the Marauders.


Led by Brad Zaffram and Jerome Brundidge who were tied for the team lead with six tackles each, the Crusader defense held the Marauders to just 99 total yards of offense including just four yards through the air.  St. Joseph’s connected on just 2-of-7 pass attempts in the contest.


Canisius also forced two turnovers in the game including an interception on the second play of the game by Keon Garrett.  Both turnovers led to Ollison touchdowns on the ground.


“St. Joseph’s was the eighth opponent that we’ve held under 100 yards this season,” Robbins said.  “We’ve really started to live in the now and started hitting our stride at the right time.”


The Crusaders are poised to make another run at the MMAA Championship next season as they return several starters, including FBS talent TJ Wheatley who has offers from Alabama, Texas A&M and Michigan to name a few.  Wheatley is the son of former NFLer and current running backs coach of the Buffalo Bills, Tyrone Wheatley.
