No pressure when you are the grandson of a coaching legend. And C.J. Curry showed leadership as a Bulldog that was reminiscent of Coach George Curry. As a senior captain, he led Berwick to a District 2 Class 3A championship and a state semi-final appearance. He threw for 1,955 yards and 19 touchdowns and ran for another four scores. For his career, he finished with over 3,500 passing yards and was responsible for 41 touchdowns during his career. Curry also played safety on defense.
The Dawgs accumulated a 24-4 record Curry’s junior and senior seasons. He was a second-team NPF Wyoming Valley Conference quarterback his senior season and Big School Honorable Mention quarterback by EasternPaFootball.com. Curry played in the PSFCA East-West Game and was the Offensive MVP for the East. Curry continued his football career at Division 2 East Stroudsburg and transferred to Division 3 King’s College where he played linebacker and eventually became the starting H-Back.
Berwick play-by-play broadcaster Jim Doyle on Curry: “Because his head coach was not only the winningest coach in state history, but also his grandfather, there was added pressure on C.J. Curry to perform well as Berwick’s quarterback. He excelled under that pressure leading the Bulldogs to a 24-4 record in his two seasons as a starter including a trip to the state semifinals as a senior. He was big and physical, but it was his football acumen that made him special.”
