Fun Fact: More than half of the Varsity roster excel at more than just football. According to staff, around 60% of their players are at least two-sport athletes.

When asked about his players being all-around student athletes, Coach Rupp said, "I think the problem today is too many kids want to specialize in one sport too early. Obviously for selfish reasons I'd rather have them here doing x's and o's but they're staying in shape and constantly competing and working on different muscle groups, it's great."
