HARRISONBURG – Broadway High School senior tailback Trevor Bostic has decided to continue his football career at Division III Bridgewater College, spurning I-AA walk-on opportunities from Richmond and William & Mary.
Bostic announced his decision Tuesday. He said he made it official by sending money to reserve his spot at BC on Friday.
Bostic’s high school teammate and blocker, senior center Dallas Harper, has also committed to BC, BHS coach Brad Lutz said.
“Everything came together at Bridgewater,” said Bostic, who was also considering Randolph-Macon, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Washington & Lee, according to Lutz. “I got in front of the right people and everybody just got me where I wanted to be with the program.”
Those people included the head of the honors program at BC and Eagles’ coach Michael Clark – who runs an offense “similar” to BHS, Bostic said.
“Money was part of it,” Bostic said of the decision. “… Also there was just a much less chance with the [I-AA walk-on offers] of getting playing time. So that was a factor in it. Also, just with Bridgewater being a smaller school, it was what I was more used to coming from Broadway.”
The 5-foot-9, 185-pound Bostic rushed for 1,559 yards and 20 touchdowns on 206 carries this past season, earning All-Region III first-team honors and all-state honorable mention. As a junior, Bostic amassed 1,845 yards and 23 TDs on 281 carries and was named the Valley District Offensive Player of the Year. He said he plans to major in computer science at BC.
