Players must provide their own cleats, shorts, socks and t-shirts.

Cleats must be white, black, navy blue, red or silver.

Players should wear light colored t-shirts.

Players are expected to wash their practice equipment. NO BLEACH.

Do NOT put knee pads in the drier.




Each player will be issued a locker and a lock.

The coaching staff will do everything in its power to secure the locker room. Unfortunately, this is not always possible. As a result, locks must be secured on each locker at all times to help limit the threat of theft. The best prevention is to leave all valuable items and money at home.

Expectation of Spectators' Sportsmanship at Games

Patriot Football Fans,

Our spectators need to uphold the value of good sportsmanship at all times.  Our fan behavior and comments are a reflection on our football program as a whole.  We encourage and need our fans to portray positive enthusiasm at all of our contests.  Our fans are an integral part of our team and any negativity is counteractive to our program's goals and have a negative impact on our student-athletes, coaching staff, and game officials.   Let the coaches coach, the officials officiate, and the spectators be positive.

Go Pioneers!
