Serving Christ and Connecting Catholics in Western North Carolina

HUNTERSVILLE — Christ the King High School has hired Joshua Sims-Crowell Sr. as its football program’s new head coach. He will be the program’s second head coach, and will have an opportunity to lead a young team into its third season in the fall of 2018.

“We are thrilled and excited to have Coach Crowell join the Christ the King community,” said Athletics Director Phil Harrington. “Not only is Coach Crowell going to bring a lot of knowledge and expertise about the game of football to our student-athletes, he is also going to bring a lot of excitement and enthusiasm to our players and fans.”

Crowell played wide receiver and punt returner at N.C. Central University, an FCS Division I school in Durham. After graduating, he was the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach at Neal Middle School before joining the coaching staff at his alma mater Beddingfield High School in Wilson, where he served as the running backs coach and co-offensive coordinator. In the past three seasons, he had a hand in winning two conference championships as well as producing three 1,000-yard rushers, two 1,500-plus-yard passers, and two 1,000- yard receivers.

“I look forward to the opportunity to lead the Christ the King football program. I’m very eager to get started with a great group of student-athletes, parents, coaches, faculty, staff, and an outstanding community,” Crowell said.
