Ross followed up a strong junior campaign with a senior year in which he racked up 36 tackles, 3.5 TFLs and a QB hurry in nine games. He played a role in a dominant Conqueror defense that yielded only 11 points a game and helped earn Trinity Christian a spot in Wednesday’s Class 3A championship game against Chaminade Madonna Prep.
From his tape, Ross shows tremendous patience in recognizing runs and when locked in on ball carriers, shows an aggressiveness to make a big play.
