QB Demos headed to Coastal Carolina

Under-the-radar quarterback Dalton Demos (St. Louis, Mo./Christian Brothers High) has verbally committed to play in the Big South Conference, choosing FCS program Coastal Carolina.

Demos, 6-foot-5 and 195 pounds, chose Coastal Carolina over Missouri State. He will join a Chanticleers squad that has a new coaching staff, led by head coach Joe Moglia.

“The new staff is great, and they are all very enthusiastic about my abilities as a quarterback,” Demos said. “The facilities are amazing, and you can’t beat the weather.”

Demos threw for 2,764 yards and 34 touchdowns and led CBC to a 13-1 record and a trip to the Missouri Class 6 championship game. With Demos taking snaps, CBC averaged 44.3 points per game in 2011.
