Gilman senior to play football at Navy


Brandon Willis, who helped Gilman School reached the MIAA A Conference football final this fall, will continue his academic and athletic career at the Naval Academy. The senior signed a scholarship letter Wednesday morning, the first day of the early national signing period.

Willis, a wide receiver/defensive back, was part of a senior class who rallied the Greyhounds from a 0-3 start into the MIAA A final and a final No. 7 ranking in VSN’s Top 20. Willis had a game-opening kickoff return score in Gilman’s semifinal victory over Calvert Hall College.

Willis tore his ACL and MCL in the MIAA A final against St. Frances Academy.
