Archbishop Hannan High School has had a long history of outstanding football. Since 1987, the Hannan Hawks Football program has formed young men of character who understand the value of teamwork, pride and honor. Their hard work and dedication paid off as they punched their ticket to the 2013 State Football Championship in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome where they were State Runner-ups.
Whether you are a novice, a good player ready to get better, or a seasoned veteran, there is a place for you in our program. The team has an ten game schedule of both district and non-district games that follows pre-season weight training, conditioning and practice. There is no need to have had a lifetime of play in order to participate in football at Archbishop Hannan. The coaches are committed to developing a strong program. Thus our philosophy is that the whole team practices together, although separated by varsity , JV and freshman skill levels. This sharing of identical concepts in all aspects of the game allows players to move between teams if and when the need arises.
Hannan football players are committed to excellence in both academics and athletics. The program not only emphasizes this on the field, but off the field as well. Our Catholic values and the Gospel of Jesus Christ lie at the heart of all our athletic programs. They play with dignity whether in victory or defeat, and they strive to uphold the school’s commitment to service, character, and sportsmanship. As a result,they are formed into men of character, ethics, and sportsmanship.
Football players are encouraged to participate in other sports programs during the winter and spring, and most are multi-sport athletes.
The team practices every day from 3:30 - 6:00 PM. During the off-season and summer, players are expected to participate in the team strength and conditioning program.
