Are You Ready for Some Football Ridgeway?

Sixty boys at RCBHS said yes to that question in March, when a sign-up sheet/petition was circulated throughout the student body.

Principal Lou Vescio and Head Coach Calvin Nigh are proud to announce the RCBHS Blue Devils will be on the gridiron this September for the first time since 1974.

Excitement for the upcoming season is building at the school. The boys and student body are looking forward to reviving the winning traditions that were established by teams of the past. Plans are in the works for day to honour some of the teams and players that made RCBHS a powerhouse in the 60's and 70's.

A football team at RCBHS provides all types of student-athletes with a rich opportunity to playa team sport that requires mental toughness, physical endurance, and strength of character. Community support has been tremendous so far, and we look forward to forging strong relationships between the businesses and service clubs in the Greater Ridgeway Area.

Football requires a big start-up cost and students will be fund-raising throughout the community to acquire enough money for equipment and transportation. Players will be selling chicken, hosting barbeques, car washes etc. in the next 3 months. Any assistance members of the community could give them would be appreciated.

Help keep our RCBHS Spirit alive and healthy!

Regards, Mr. Nigh.
