Varsity Football Team 2017
JV Football Team 2017


We played a very, very tough schedule and finished the regular season strong at 7-3; unfortunately we lost in the first round of state.  There was tremendous growth in our younger players that enabled them to contribute at the end of the season.  Our seniors were great leaders for us on and off the field and left a solid legacy for the next group of leaders to follow.  

What a difference being 1 year older and stronger, having good health,and having more coaches means for a program!  The football team was more dedicated to the weight room and it showed in the results of our games.  I look forward to this continuing in the future.  I"m appreciative of the six men who helped me coach this year.  They were dedicated to helping our players become better football players and young men.  It was fun working with them and I look forward to more of the same next year.  Thank you to the seniors and their parents for their many years of dedication to our program.  Your work, integrity, and character have left a positive mark that will last for seasons.
