Rocky Mount, N.C. - The N.C. Wesleyan Department of Athletics and head football coach Jeff Filkovski are pleased to announce the addition of J.T. Crews to its coaching staff. Crews will serve as Recruiting Coordinator and will guide the Battling Bishop linebacker unit.
Crews joins NCWC after a successful five-year stint at Christopher Newport University, his alma mater. His coaching stint with CNU saw him gain valuable experience on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball, and his efforts led to seven players earning All-Conference honors under his direction. Additionally, the Lynchburg, Virginia native served four seasons as the program's Video Coordinator, which included oversight of various highlight videos and social media.
An offensive lineman by trade, Crews made the move to the sidelines after a solid four-year career with the Captains, who were members of the USA South Athletic Conference at the time. He was, in fact, a two-time USA South All-Conference selection who garnered All-State honors and was CNU's Offensive Most Valuable Player as a senior. Crews is proud to have led CNU to its only two undefeated conference championships in program history -- first as a freshman in 2008 and again as a senior in 2011.
Crews earned his undergraduate degree in Business Management from Christopher Newport in 2012, which included a minor in Leadership Studies.
