Elkhart High School Football

Coach’s Note

This is an exciting year for Elkhart Football.  After a great and unique 2020 season, we are looking forward to building off of the success we had and move our program forward.  While we have a lot of very talented players and coaches to replace, we are excited about the growth and competition we will see from our very young team as the season progresses.  We have a difficult NIC schedule that will prepare us for postseason play.  I love the work ethic and drive of this team so far as we embark on our journey together.
Thanks!  GO LIONS!  LTT
