MISSION STATEMENT: The purpose of the Lake Catholic Green & Grey Backers Club (Backers Club) is to unite Lake Catholic High School football alumni, coaches, parents, past parents, and Cougar football friends to support the Cougar football program. We are committed to building and sustaining relationships among alumni and all members of the Lake Catholic family. Our football alumni are very important in our success as a club and in fulfilling our mission. Your support will help sustain the time-honored tradition of cougar football excellence.
HISTORY: Since 1972 when Tom Ward welcomed 22 sophomores to the gridiron, Lake Catholic has been synonymous with winning football, developing young men for life and fellowship among our Cougar family. Our “Alligator Chant” is a huddle of togetherness after a tough practice to inspire, in one unified voice, our team to give their all in upcoming competition.
Our school Fight Song offers “Humble in Victory, Proud in Defeat,” and our LC coaches provide well-prepared young men for competition in a Christian environment - promoting a high standard of sportsmanship and ministry. Our entire football family (cheerleaders, players, coaches and staff) pray together before our competition and seek His presence in “Playing like a Champion.”
We gather again as a family after games on the field to sing our Alma Mater and show school spirit as Cougars. It is in this fellowship – this “Semper Fi” like bond that our Lake Catholic family resonates and remains special for the many who walked the hallways and donned the uniform.
As a Club whose members include the many who yelled the chant, competed on the field and prayed together, our mission is to support the proud tradition of Cougar football. Hard Work, Preparation, teamwork, Leadership, Character, Respect for the Game and Giving Maximum Effort are the credo’s of preparing young men for competition on the field and in life. All proceeds from memberships benefit the Lake Catholic Football Program and the John C. Gibbons Scholarship Fund. Please consider helping support the tradition that is Lake Catholic Football. Go Cougars!
