OVERVIEW

DeMatha Football is a nationally-renowned program filled with years of history, championships and Stags later playing at the collegiate, and some at the professional level. But the success of the program wouldn't have been easy to predict when the school fielded its first football team in October of 1949. The first teams were a competitive bunch led by Coach Jim Curran, a Notre Dame alum. But he best was yet to come for DeMatha football with Morgan Wootten in 1956 and then later, Bill McGregor, who coached the Stags to 20 conference championships.

After playing for both Wootten and McGregor, Elijah Brooks '02, now in his eighth year as head coach, has continued that winning tradition by claiming four additional WCAC titles. As an alum and former player, Coach Brooks understands what it takes to keep DeMatha football the powerhouse program it has been into the years ahead.

Dematha has been blessed with a rich tradition of success in its athletics, and football is obviously no exception. Virtually every season, at least 10 or more seniors on the varsity football team have received scholarships to college, and the school is recognized each fall as having among the highest number of alumni who have payed in the NFL. With Coach Brooks and a talented roster and coaching staff at the helm, the future continues to look bright for DeMatha football.
