Attention Players, Parents, Friends, Alumni and Staff:
We regret to inform you that The St. Charles football team will not compete this season because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic per athletics director Dave Lawler.
“We decided that the risk of playing other schools in these contact sports (this fall) was not worth it for the kids and the community,” Lawler said. “School administrators and our advisory board were consulted and both (soccer coach) Chris (Vonau) and (football coach) Deke (Hocker) were involved in the conversations.”
As football boosters, we are heartbroken over this decision and will do everything we can to support the staff and the players through this difficult time and especially our Senior Boys who are losing their final year at St Charles.
