I’m writing on behalf of the newly formed Haven Gridiron Club, which is an organization comprised of parents and alumni committed to seeing Strath Haven High School Football return to its former glory.
In recent years the program has suffered from declining participation and budget cuts driven by larger economic pressures on the school district. These factors have impacted Strath Haven’s ability to compete at the upper echelon of the Central League and in the state playoffs. Coach Clancy continues to field talented, hard-nosed teams, but when faced with programs able to bring more resources and twice as many players to bear, it has been tough sledding for our Panthers.
We’d like to change that.
