Football - Mens Varsity


Archbishop Hannan High School has a long history of outstanding football. Since 1987, the Hawk Football program has formed young men of character who understand the value of teamwork, pride and honor. Their hard work and dedication paid off when they earned the title of State Runner-Up in the 2013 State Football Championship in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Whether you are a novice player or a seasoned veteran, there is a place for you in our program. The team has a ten game schedule of both district and non-district games that follows pre-season weight training, conditioning and practice. 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 emphasizes this not only 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.

Practice Information

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.

Head Varsity Football Coach Scott Wattigny

Coaching Philosophy

As head coach of Archbishop Hannan High School's football team, Coach Wattigny is focused on his role as mentor/leader. The central principle of my philosophy is to be a mentor -leader. I want to mentor the young men I coach so that they will become leaders themselves. I want them to become leaders in their respective households as fathers and husbands and also to be an active citizen in our society. I want to use the head coach position as a platform to impact and positively influence the young men that are under my direction. I want to inspire young men to want to achieve greatness and find passion in all that they do. Achieving greatness will never be limited to just the football field. I will use the game of football for what it is – a tool to teach young men the value of hard work, effort, work ethic, commitment, accountability, and most importantly humility. The game of football will allow our young men to learn these qualities, and it will be my job to ensure that they use them in their everyday lives and more importantly for their future. Some say the game football builds character. However, I believe that the game of football reveals character. A good coach gets his players to believe in him, and a great coach gets his players to believe in themselves. My job is to the shepherd our student-athletes to believe that they can accomplish all things through Christ.

Our motto is, "I am THIRD". I am THIRD stems from placing God first in our lives, our FAMILY second, and ourselves THIRD. We want God to be the driving force for every decision and action we make in our lives. I want our football team and staff to think about how their families will be affected by their decisions and actions. The family will not be limited to just our immediate family members – the term family will take on many different meanings for each individual who is a member of our team. Family could mean football team, school community, drama club, friends, etc. Lastly, our decisions and actions should never reflect our selfish desires. I want our entire football team and staff to understand that there has never been a good outcome when we reverse the order and put ourselves first before God and our family. Our team will embody this statement from every facet of our lives, and I will always lead our team with this in mind.

I believe in creating and instilling in every player a set of strong, character-building habits. What separates the heroes, leaders, champions, and saints of our time from everyone else is they just have formed better habits than the rest of us. Good habits equal good character. On the football field, you need both. We will stress and concentrate on creating good habits every day, and they will never be overlooked. Our habits will consist of doing the fundamentals right all the time. We will approach every technical repetition with precision and accuracy. I believe that fundamentals and technique override athletic ability more often than not. Teaching our young men to appreciate the little things in life will not only help them succeed on the football field, but it will also serve as a foundation upon which they can build when they exit our program and enter into the real world.
