Brian Ellerbe

Director of Athleitcs


Athletics play a very beneficial role in the lives of young people.  Here at Archbishop Carroll, we want our student-athletes to use and cultivate the skills that are needed to be successful student-athletes carried over into their adult lives.


Over the past 60-plus years we have developed and graduated several student-athletes that have excelled on the collegiate levels and even the professional level.  Many of our student-athletes are successful in their own right and have gone on to be very productive citizens locally, nationally, and internationally.


It is my goal to increase the number of student-athletes receiving athletic scholarships after graduating from an illustrious secondary institution.  We want to continue to produce quality student-athletes at Archbishop Carroll.


We invite new families and student-athletes to become a part of our community.  We extend an invitation to our parents to be active members of the Athletic Department.  We welcome our loyal and passionate alumni home (for we know “There’s NO place like home!”.
