Bishop Lynch TE headed to East Coast

Everyday another high school athlete makes his decision on where he wants to play college football. Today, we got a buzz from Alan Hauser, father of tight end Josh of Dallas Bishop Lynch. He found the right fit and committed. Hauser talked to TexasPrepInsider about his recent pledge.

It seems as though the academic parameters would always be the top priority for Dallas (TX) Bishop Lynch tight Josh Hauser. But, he also wanted to find a program where he could not only get a good education, but also play sports at a competitive level.

And he recently found that. All it took was one trip near Boston and the 6-foot-4, 215-pound Hauser decided he was done with the recruiting process.

"I went up to Holy Cross last weekend and I decided that that is where I want to go to school," Hauser said. "I already knew that there was an opportunity to get a good education there, but when I got there I was sold."

And with his decision comes a bonus. Hauser will get the chance to play both football and baseball. And while continuing to compete is both sports are important, there are more perks that Hauser found out while on his visit.

Once he is on campus as a Crusader, Hauser will be familiar with many things despite the fact he is on the college level.

"The offense they run is the same one we run at Bishop Lynch. I will still be playing tight end, but they (Crusader coaches) plan to flex me out some too," Hauser said. "We (Bishop Lynch) ran a lot of four wide receiver with one back sets. I may even slide in the backfield to help with blocking on some plays too."

There are other pluses as well.

"Holy Cross plays in the Patriot League which means we have the chance to play in the playoffs," Hauser said. "Some of the other Ivy League schools don't get this opportunity. In the Patriot League, if you finish No. 1 you automatically get a bid to the I-AA playoffs."

In Hauser's last season as a Friar, he finished with 55 catches for 950 yards and 14 touchdowns.
