Cardinal Football Parents:

I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to be apart of your child’s life as their football coach. I hope that we are all apart of something bigger than any of us…a program one to be admired and respected by all. I welcome those new to our program and invite you to be a positive and supportive part of it! We have had several good things happen within the program and it is in large part to the quality of parental support and backing from our parents and supporters.

Here is a tentative Spring and Summer Football schedule (any changes will be posted on our school’s website, under “Athletics” and then “Cardinal Football”, online at, in the local newspaper, and/or in a note to your child):
