The HCA Eagles are known as one of the state's premier private school six-man football programs. The team has reached the playoffs in each of the past 11 years, and during that same time has made it to the state finals three times, claiming the trophy once. In addition to team accolades, there have been several awards given ranging from Coach of the Year to All-American honors. The varsity football program is extremely accomplished, but nothing is more important to the coaches than the personal development of these young men.
The winning tradition of the varsity football program begins in middle school. Teaching a solid foundation of fundamentals and technique, and using schemes that are similar to the varsity, ensures that the students are prepared to compete at higher levels. Middle school is a developmental age, and athletes begin to transition from recreational to more competitive athletics. Students are encouraged to try new sports, including football, so they can experience teamwork, hard work, and success in a fun yet competitive environment.
