Gridiron Leadership Council

The Holy Cross Gridiron Leadership Council was established in 2009 to increase the level of support and heighten awareness of the Crusader football program. The council is comprised of approximately 50 alumni and friends who have expressed an interest in providing leadership and support to the program.  The purpose of this group will continue to evolve over time but initially is focused on the following objectives:

> Growing attendance at the Annual Golf Outing and Spring Alumni Game
> Hosting receptions and networking events
> Helping to promote attendance at games and special events, like team reunions
> Assisting with growing the donor base of the Gridiron Club
> Providing mentoring for Crusader football student-athletes

The council encompasses alumni and friends of Holy Cross Football and will help promote the culture of Crusader football by developing relationships between these groups and our Crusaders, their parents, and the coaching staff. The council is completely volunteer driven. Our main goal is to assist the Crusader football program in reaching a championship level both on and off the field. The following individuals are part of the Holy Cross Gridiron Leadership Council:
