Located just outside of Houston, NAU is a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), and is in it’s fourth year of competing as an NAIA Independent within the Continental Athletic Conference. Centenary’s program is even newer having announced in November of last year that after first playing football in 1894 before stopping in 1941 that the Gentleman would revive the program again in 2023.

Tatum was one of the strongest players on the team last year and played alongside Waters, a two-time All-District honoree, on the line for the 2022 Jonesboro-Hodge Tiger football team. Gray, who didn’t start playing football until his junior season, did double duty as a wide receiver and defensive back. Each made their commitment announcement on Twitter on January 29th and 30th.
