WELCOME TO RHS FOOTBALL!

Roosevelt Football is a fall no-cut sport where teams are broken down into Varsity, Junior Varsity, (sometimes JVC) and Freshman levels. We are highly competitive in the Metro League where 12 of the 2022-2023 and 24 of the 2021-2022 Varsity players were named to the All-Metro 1st or 2nd teams, or received Honorable Mentions in one or more positions! 

Registration typically starts in May, followed by optional, but highly recommended, summer conditioning sessions. August is a busy and fun month for the team filled with mandatory practices (sometimes two-a-days) starting in mid-August, team picture day, and our inner-squad Green & Gold game. Our first game typically is scheduled the first week of school. Please see the 2022 Fall Football Calendar HERE(updated 6/13/2022).

For more information about the team, please visit our team website at roughridersfb.org OR contact Coach Sherlock at rpsherlock@seattleschools.org.

In preparation for practices, please plan to outfit your player in TEAM COLORS ONLY - Green, Gold, Gray, White, or Black clothing and cleats , please.  If you or your player need help with this, please contact Coach Sherlock.

TEAM RULES

Players are expected to maintain great effort, a positive attitude, and a willingness to live by our three team rules:

  1. TEAM FIRST
  2. ALWAYS COMPETE
  3. NO EXCUSES

Game Day Expectations

  • Show respect to the opponent as they are involved in the same game day experience
  • Be role models of appropriate behavior, poise, and confidence (be in control of your emotions, avoid derogatory comments)
  • Accept judgments of the officials and coaches (it’s not easy, but criticism rarely helps and often worsens the situation)
  • Accept the results of each game; do not make excuses
  • Keep perspective in both victory and defeat – win and lose with class
  • Dignify mistakes made by athletes; they are giving their best effort and concentration
  • Cheer for OUR TEAM LOUD and PROUD!
