In the Trinity-Pawling football program, we define success by the impact we make in each young man’s life through the lessons learned on and off the field. We believe in the power of a team and seek young men of character that want to compete and be challenged every day to become better students and athletes. As coaches, we strive to give every athlete – regardless of talent – a tremendous experience by taking a personal interest in every young man in the program and caring about them as individuals. We strive to develop each player in our program as well-rounded students, athletes, and men of integrity. It is never easy but always worth it. Roll Pride!
The Trinity-Pawling football program has developed a rich tradition of success on the field since the founding of the School in 1907. The Pride has won two New England Class A championships, four New England bowl victories (most recently against Deerfield Academy in the Mike Atkins NEPSAC Bowl), and five Erickson League championships. We have alumni that have competed in all levels of collegiate athletics, including the SEC, Big 10, ACC, American, CAA, Ivy League, Northeast Conference, and NESCAC, as well as the professional ranks including the NFL and CFL. We remain committed to helping young men navigate the recruiting process by emphasizing the importance of finding the best “fit” at the next level.
Trinity-Pawling competes in the prestigious Founders League, part of the New England Prep School Athletic Conference (NEPSAC) Class A Football. In the Founders League, the Pride competes against rivals such as Avon Old Farms, Choate, Hotchkiss, Kent, Loomis-Chaffee, and Taft. The Founders League rules limit our number of postgraduates spots to six.
