  • JOIN THE GRIDIRON CLUBA Message from Coach Favret

    Its hard to believe Im in my eleventh year on the Hill as the head football coach. With players from my earliest teams now in the thirties, Im taken back by how time truly flies. We are also celebrat-ing a decade of the Hampden-Sydney Gridiron Club. As Ive stated many times, our success on

    the football field has run parallel to the generous and helping hands of our loyal supporters. A scorecard of the dramatic improvements in the football program since 1999:

    Irrigation systems for both practice fieldsPlanting of Bermuda grass on both practice fieldsGammon weight room for athletes only (2002)New Nike game jerseys (home and away)Renovation of Fulton Field (2003) Digital cameras and state-of-the art computer softwareFilm tower on practice fieldVastly improved travel and lodging arrangements for the student/athletesCompletion of Everett Stadium (2007)New scoreboard at Fulton FieldCompletion of Kirk Athletic Center featuring: Brand new football locker room 6 meeting rooms for athletes Brand new offices for coaches Film room for staff Brand new training room Air conditioned space throughout the building

    This incredible transformation, made possible almost exclusively through the help of former Tiger football players, has coincided with our 72-18 record over the past nine years. We now can lay a legiti-mate claim to being one of the top twenty-five football programs in the country.

    Under the leadership of president, Bill Moore (78) and backed by our devoted Advisory Board, the Gridiron Club now hopes to take new and bold steps forward. Specifically, we expect to dramatically increase participation among former players (right now less than 5% of ex-Tigers are active in the Gridiron Club). With your help, we can continue our rise to the top of the national ranks.

    Thanks again for your loyalty and support. I look forward to seeing you this fall.

    Go Tigers!


    Lewis C. Everett Stadium was completed in 2007 and has become one of the most feared locals in the nation. The Tigers have boasted a 17-3 record and have averaged the second highest attendance nationally in both 2009 and 2010.
