A disappointing 2-8 season left a sour taste in the mouth of Paramus Catholic’s football program. However, the Paladins are driving into 2019 with a new heir of confidence as last year’s down season fades into the rearview mirror.

Led by senior offensive lineman and high D-I recruit Devin Willock — along with juniors Dorian Nowell and Jarred George — the Paladins feel confident as head coach John Whitehead builds a new culture in Paramus.
