DuBois “Boise” Ross enrolls at Freedom

Written by: on Thursday, July 12th, 2012. Follow David Mika on Twitter.


BETHLEHEM – “Former Pius X’s star DuBois “Boise” Ross enrolled at Bethlehem Freedom high school about two weeks ago, ” said head football coach Jason Roeder. “He has worked out with us since he has enrolled.”

Ross is considered one of the top multi-purpose athletes in Eastern PA.

“He is impressive physically in person,” said Roeder. “He is very talented and what stood out is his work ethic. The way he practices and the way he works.”

The 6-0, 175-pound wide receiver/safety caught 49 passes for 1,177 yards and 19 touchdowns. He was impressive on defense with 93 total tackles, 46 unassisted and five interceptions.

“He is equally impressive on defense and he will play both ways for us,” said Roeder. “Right now we are working with him at corner back.”

In his sophomore year Ross caught 25 passes for 337 yards and had 79 total tackles.

Ross also received interest from programs like Buffalo, Cincinnati, Holy Cross, Michigan State, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Temple.

Freedom is coming off an 8-3 season.

    It’s funny how a few Pius kids went to school in the Bethlehem SD (Long and Ross as Liberty kids). Long supposed to be off to Tennessee and Ross now off to Freedom. Whatever they feel is best for their kid. Obviously it’s hard for Pius to find a QB to get Ross the ball so he left to a more wide open Freedom offense. Liberty if in the flexbone won’t pass as much and he’d be their #2 receiver behind KJ Williams.

    Jason Roeder may be one of the best recruiters in all of Pennsylvania, they just never materialize on the field.
