OUR STORY


Welcome to a Denver's newest, most exciting, high school football program.  Welcome to Northfield Football.  

The coaches are busy building a one-of-a-kind F.A.M.I.L.Y environment, determined to build a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for everyone at Northfield Football.  With new coaches, new facilities, and a new Athletic Director, the energy, enthusiasm, and spirit for NHS Football has never been greater. Every facet of our football program is challenging, calling on our student-athletes to be their absolute best.  Our standards are extremely high, and we aim to develop every dimension of our student-athletes, including athletically, academically, in character, and in leadership.

Very simply, we are in the business of Building Men and Winning Championships.  We firmly believe the latter is a byproduct of the first, respectively.  

The Time is NOW:  We believe that there is an unique opportunity before our entire community -- our players, our teachers, our coaches, our parents, our business partners, and our administration -- to embrace the rising tide of expectations for all student-athletes at Northfield.  By harnessing a collective momentum, and firmly establishing Northfield as a once-in-a-lifetime experience, we all benefit.  

Our Ask:  Our football program is growing rapidly, and we are in need of safety equipment (helmets, shoulder pads, etc.), field equipment, uniforms,  and basic program supplies.  Your support is critical to ensuring our mission that all kids are safe and have the equitable opportunity to play this great game.

Current Reality:  Humbly, we can offer some context.  Our program currently has 41 Varsity Uniforms.  We have 54 helmets, 61 pairs of shoulder pads (which are not one-size-fits-all). As of this writing, we have approximately 84 players who have confirmed that they intend to play football next fall. Additionally, NHS Football recently received a list of 20 more incoming 9th graders who have expressed interest (although not yet confirmed). Even if half of those players show up, we will be over 90 players in the program.

In that spirit, we need your help.  Only through our extended community, including friends, family, and our business partners, will we be able to ensure our boys will be able to play.  Anything that you might be able to offer, gets us closer.
