Why Wake Forest? "I chose Wake because of a great education, a great coaching staff, and playing at Wake gives me a shot at a BCS title every year."

Chattahoochee Coach Crowder on Cross: "Brendan was a 3 year starter here at Chattahoochee and led us to some very big wins. To say Chattahoochee football is what it is because of Brendan Cross would be an understatement. Brendan had 8 sophomores with him on offense this season and at times that was hard on him but Brendan never complained and showed great leadership throughout the season. Brendan comes from a great football background. His father played for the 49ers and Brendan just has a great knowledge of the game. Brendan has as strong of an arm as I have seen in high school football. He is also a very good runner. Brendan is coming to Wake a bit under the radar but everyone will know him before he leaves. Wake is getting a very special player in Brendan Cross."
