Redmond’s Medeiros captains Eastside Catholic varsity football squad

Redmond resident and senior Jason Medeiros was voted one of four captains by his teammates for this year’s Eastside Catholic High varsity football team, which is 1-1 at press time. The Crusaders will take on Rigby at 7 p.m. Sept. 14 at home.

Medeiros, now a standout center who was a two-time all-3A Metro League selection at guard, is a four-year varsity player and a three-year starter for the Crusaders. He started as a freshman in 2015 during the squad’s playoff run that resulted in the team’s second consecutive 3A state title.

Medeiros — the Crusaders’ only offensive player captain — has three current offers to play college ball, one of which is from the Air Force Academy, and has gained attention from several Ivy League schools and a couple other Division I schools. He has a 3.96 grade-point average, a 32 ACT score and is a member of the National Honor Society.
