Two Charlotte Catholic football players sign

Charlotte Catholic defensive back/defensive back Johnny O'Boyle and offensive lineman Adam Guess signed with Navy on Monday.

Both visited the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. last weekend, Charlotte Catholic athletics director Kevin Christmas said.

O'Boyle (6-foot-1, 175 pounds) rushed for 485 yards and six touchdowns on 50 carries last season, and caught 17 passes for 487 yards and six scores. He also was one of the Cougars' leading tacklers.

Guess (6-0, 255) was an all-Queen City 3A/4A pick.
