Where Is The Crew Of Netflix's Titletown High Now?

This past summer, Netflix released "Titletown High," a reality series from the creator of "Two-a-Days" (Jason Sciaviccoth) that followed the players, infamous head coach, and various significant others and family members of Valdosta High's nationally-renowned football team in their 20-21 season. As the nation's all-time most winning high school football program (via playfootball.nfl.com), the struggles and successes of the Georgia high school provided sports fans with plenty of high-stakes drama, but it was the narrative of the team's new and controversial coach combined with the ups and downs of the relatable (if necessarily archetypal) players — and those in their immediate orbit — that helped the show build a devoted and diverse following. 

"Titletown High" was part "Gossip Girl," part "Varsity Blues," and part "Dawson's Creek," but (unlike either of the James Van Der Beek vehicles), the tensions, teenage trials and tribulations, and real-life consequences and obstacles facing the cast of "characters" at the heart of the series were all very real. Almost immediately after the series was released (and subsequently binged by many) fans began to wonder what had become of Valdosta High's most beloved Wildcats in the year following the show's filming. 

Fan favorite Jacarrius Peak already has offers from colleges

Over the course of "Titletown High's" eight-episode arc, offensive lineman Jacarrius Peak (aka "Peak") proved himself to be as valuable to the team off the field as he was on it. Extraordinarily self-aware and empathetic, Peak frequently served as the team's "rock," often putting the emotional and mental needs of his teammates before his own. Though he admitted in the beginning of the season that he had some work to do in order to get in (no pun intended) peak form, he ultimately helped carry the team to numerous victories, and in more ways than one.

In various episodes, Peak acted as a voice of reason with reagard to teammate Amari Jones and friend Morgan Miller when it became clear that the strife in the pair's relationship was affecting the former's focus, and impacting the quality of Jones' game. Since nothing is straightforward in the world of reality TV-fueled teen relationships, Peak first had to first convince Jones that he had no romantic interest in Miller — a non-drama that took all of twenty seconds to conclude in episode 4, despite the show's attempts to draw it out. Put simply, Peak (who is also a varsity basketball player) ultimately proved he was there to play, and with offers from both Eastern Kentucky University and MoreHouse College, it appears that motivation remains the case in the athlete's senior year at Volstada (via the athlete's Twitter).

Grayson Leavy continues to work toward a sports scholarship

Although sophomore defensive lineman and Valdosta native Grayson Leavy was often framed as the center of romantic conflict in "Titletown High," there was another, more football-centric narrative at play in his story. Leavy grew up wanting nothing more than to play for the Wildcats, and although — at the start of the season — he had yet to see much time on the field, he was determined to change his station in the team's ranks (and thereby change his station in life). "My parents can't afford to send me to college," he says in the first episode, before going on to talk about the importance of a football scholarship. 

In many ways, Leavy represented the archetypal underdog and believer in the American Dream — the hometown kid that you can't help but root for, despite the fact that he occasionally puts that dream in jeopardy due to his own missteps (at one point, notably, Leavy has to miss two games due to exposing himself to Covid-19). Nowadays, the 2023 graduate is keeping his numerous social media followers up to date on his athletic progress (he also wrestles and plays soccer) and appears to be working just as hard as ever toward his ultimate goal. "Ever since I was a kid I dreamed of being a wildcat and to play on Friday nights," he wrote in a recent IG post, adding "always push to make your dreams come true." 

QB Jake Garcia is officially a Miami Hurricane

Five-star quarterback and Orange County's La Habra High transplant, Jake Garcia, met with a disappointing run at Volstada — and through no fault of his own. After it came to light that his parents had separated only in order to lock-down his eligibility at the Georgia high school, the GHSA (Georgia High School Association) opened an investigation into the legality of Garcia's place on the team. After fighting through an injury to help lead the team to 28-25 win in the series' first episode, Garcia was ultimately ruled ineligible to play, and the win became a loss via forfeit. Garcia then "transferred to Grayson High in Loganville after ensuring they had no matches with Valdosta" (via The Cinemaholic).

After initially committing to the USC Trojans following an incredible senior year at Grayson, Garcia re-evaluated his decision. In December of 2020, the player announced that he'd ultimately decided to play for the Miami Hurricanes. As Fansided's Alan Rubenstein reports, "Garcia was the 47th ranked player, fifth-ranked QB and seventh-ranked player in Georgia in the Class of 2021," as well as "the third highest-ranked player and top offensive signee for Miami in 2021" (via Canes Warning). Currently, Garcia is keeping fans up-to-date via his Instagram account

QB Amari Jones is officially a Bradford High Tornado

Whatever hope viewers had of seeing some grand, ferocious rivalry between the Wildcat's sitting QB, Amari Jones, and the QB who was brought in to potentially unseat him, Jake Garcia, was crushed in the series' first few episodes. Not — it's worth noting — because Garcia was forced to transfer, but because the driven and committed Jones professed to being more interested in "learning what he could" from the competition, and viewing the threat of Garcia through the lens of the added motivation it could bring to his game. For a high schooler, Jones repeatedly showed a degree of rationale and pragmatism that endeared him to viewers, though his on-again-off-again relationship with Morgan Miller occasionally (and understandably, considering the pair's age) disrupted the QB's focus and level-headed approach to obstacles. Of course, after the scandal with Coach Rush Probst broke (see: below), any minor drama the player might have had with his girlfriend was brought into its rightful perspective in comparison. 

As The Dipp reports, following the investigation into Probst, Amari Jones was "deemed ineligible to play in any GHSA sport for a year," and subsequently "transferred to Bradford High School in Florida" (via The Dipp). Despite the scandal that threatened to take the promising young player down with it, Jones currently has offers from nearly a dozen different colleges and universities (via 247 Sports), and — like his fellow teammates and "cast members" from "Titletown High" — continues to keep fans up to date on his career via his social media

Believe it or not, the women of Titletown High exist beyond the relief of their male counterparts

Although "Titletown High" stars Morgan Miller, Zoey Watson, and Lenley Scott-Gross — via their relationships with (respectively) Amari Jones and Grayson Leavy — provided viewers with more than a little off-the-field drama, it appears that in the months since, all three young women have moved on with their lives. 

Amari's strong-willed girlfriend, cheerleader-gymnast Morgan Miller, was presented as the kind of woman that media outlets revel in referring to as "feisty." Her tumultuous relationship with Jones ultimately served to highlight the bond that they shared with their teammate and friend Jacarrius Peak, who stepped in to help them sort out their issues. Miller was often framed as the Yoko Ono to the Beatles that were The Wildcats, but it appears, based on her Instagram, that since her split with Jones, the talented high school athlete is doing just fine.

As for the two young women sophomores Grayson Leavy juggled for the first half of the series, both appear to be living their own dang lives to the fullest. Watson was presented as the literal "girl-next-door," long-time friend, and former girlfriend of Grayson, while Scott-Gross filled the role of the new girlfriend and "pretty, uptown party girl." Scott-Gross grew tired of being led-on halfway through the series, and to the surprise of absolutely no one, Leavy and Watson rekindled their former romance after she chose to isolate with him during a Covid scare. The triangle had the makings of an early Taylor Swift song, but if Scott-Gross and Watson's social medias are to be believed, both women are doing just fine outside of Leavy's orbit. As Scott-Gross says in the series finale — demonstrating a wisdom beyond her years — "I don't care...I'm moving on with my life." 

Coach Rush Propst is still being Coach Rush Propst

Not only was Coach Rush Propst the most controversial figure in "Titletown High," he was also at the heart of Sciaviccoth's interest in creating the show. "When you take Rush Propst and you take the tradition that is Valdosta," the creator told Entertainment Weekly, "it was just like, 'We've got to do a series." (via Entertainment Tonight) Propst had also appeared in Sciaviccoth's "Two-a-Days" on MTV, so the creator was no stranger to the coach's prior scandals. In other words, that Propst would imbue the series with added drama and controversy wasn't just assumed — it was counted on — and boy did Propst deliver on that promise. 

Following a leaked conversation in which the Valdosta head coach discussed what's known in the world of high school and collegiate athletics as "funny money," ESPN reported that "the Georgia High School Association levied a $7,500 fine against Valdosta High School, ordered the Wildcats to forfeit seven victories from the 2020 football season, banned the team from playing in the postseason in 2021 and declared a handful of players ineligible for next season." The outlet goes on to report that according to one sworn deposition, "Propst was seeking $850 per month to pay expenses for quarterback Amari Jones, who relocated to Valdosta from the Atlanta area." 

Propst was ultimately placed on administrative leave after just one season at Valdosta for attempting to stack the school's team with players whose presence and eligibility he was endeavoring to pay for using illegal funds.  At present, the no-stranger-to-scandal coach is still under investigation, but according to a recent article published in The Atlanta Journal Constitution, "the former coach stands a chance of getting his job back."
