Boys Varsity Football, Varsity Football · Colerain Football Announces Alumni Recognition Program

Football has been an integral part of Colerain High School and the Colerain community for nearly 100 years, dating all the way back to that first season in 1935.  Who could forget that close call vs. Taylor, a 7-6 Cardinal victory!  Colerain Cardinal football has provided a sense of pride for our community and a sense of purpose, direction and accomplishment for the thousands of young people that have participated in it over the decades.

Quite frankly, when it comes to storied prep sports programs in Greater Cincinnati, there are very few that match the history, tradition and excellence of Colerain Football…

All-Time record of 542-254-19 (.665 winning %)
34 Conference Championships
22 Playoff Appearances
8 Regional Championships
2004 State Champion

As a way to honor ALL of those players who have been a part of Colerain Football history, Colerain High School Athletics proudly announces the installation of the Colerain Football Alumni Wall.

This incredible display will be located on the West wall in the Cardinal Village…on the path for all current and future Cardinals to see as they head to the field of battle on Friday nights in the fall.   All who visit Colerain High School throughout the year and especially on those awesome fall nights when the Cardinals are at home in “The Cage” will be able to see the names of those who proudly chose to “Fight, fight, fight for ol’ Colerain High!”

When asked to comment on the importance of this new addition to campus, Colerain Head Football Coach Shawn Cutright said, “The tradition of Colerain Football runs very deep. EVERY person who has EVER put on their equipment and walked down those stairs understands just how special it is AND everyone from the past has helped us get where we are today. The purpose of this wall is to honor all those young men that came before us AND so that our current and future players can see they are playing for something much bigger than themselves as they walk by all those names on their way to the playing field on Friday night. We Are Colerain!”

What a tremendous testament it would be to have an entire wall filled with commemorative footballs with the names, numbers and years of Colerain Football Alumni.  Whether you purchase one for yourself or you purchase one as a gift for a former player you know, you will be buying quality that will last a lifetime.  At a cost of $100, the footballs will be made of durable metal with a vinyl cast overlay that makes them weather proof and strong enough to stand the test of time…just like the way we make our football players!
