It is a big deal to play in the Holy Bowl, but this Swedish quarterback is flying into unchartered territory.
Sweden and America do not have many things in common. While people in one country kick a ball into a goal, people in the other throw it for a touchdown. Few make the journey from one to the other. However, CB is home to a living legend who has.
Even though the Christian Brothers Falcons football team continue to roll over every opponent that has stood in their path this season, all eyes look ahead to this week’s opponent on high school football biggest stage: Jesuit in the annual The Holy Bowl.
At the head of the explosive CB offense is Swedish quarterback Chris Guillen (’15) also known as The Swede. Since arrriving from his home land Sweden last year, Chris continues to impress his opponents and teammates with his dynamic pocket presence and accurate throws.
Chris is turning heads as the starting quarterback for the Falcons and is stepping up as a leader to his fellow teammates.
“Starting is a lot of fun” Chris exclaimed. “It is also a lot of pressure on you too, but I love it.”
Chris has solidified himself as a quarterback and a poised leader on this Falcon offense. When asked if he thinks he has anything to prove to his team he had this to say:”I need to prove to them that I can win Holy Bowl. Get that W baby!”
However, few high school quarterbacks get to lead their varsity team into as such a fierce rivalry like the Holy Bowl.
“I have never played in a game like this rivalry before and I am very excited.” Chris said.
Chris has played two years of Varisty level football at Christian Brothers, both at quarterback. This will be his first year commanding the offense as the starter for the big game.
CB Varsity Football Coach George Petrissans continues to mentor Chris and ensure that he succeeds in his leadership role.
“Chris has done an excellent job leading our offense this year and being vocal.” Coach Petrissans said. “His experiences last year have really helped him grow this year.”
“I can only see Chris getting better from this point forward.”
Chris is a rising star on this already talent packed Falcon offense. He is ready to prove to his team and to his coaches he is the right choice to lead the falcons in front of a loud and excited fan base.
