JARRED BREVARD

Jarred Brevard didn't just find a future home in Fordham, he found a college whose head coach shared common ground in their childhoods.

Like Brevard, Fordham coach Joe Moorhead is a Penn Hills native who attended St. Bartholomew grade school before playing quarterback at Central Catholic and Fordham.

“I thought it was pretty cool,” Brevard said. “He's somebody you know you can trust.”

Brevard trusted Moorhead so much he made a verbal commitment to the Patriot League school. The Shady Side Academy running back chose the Rams over Cornell, Davidson and Penn.

Fordham started the season 7-0 and is ranked in the top 10 in FCS.

“I took an unofficial visit in the summer and they pretty much rolled out the red carpet for me,” Brevard said. “I felt like it was the right spot for me to go.

“With the situation they're in, they're only taking one running back and had other offers out there. I wanted to make sure I had my spot. I didn't want to miss out on the opportunity to go there since they were my No. 1.”
