Calling all Trojan Football State Champions ... Join us Sept. 6!
Bishop Chatard invites all football alumni who played on one of the school's 13 state championship teams to be our guest on September 6 at the Bishop Chatard vs. Roncalli game on the Trojan home field.
Game time is 7 p.m., and your entrance will be at the  north end zone gate . Check in at the entrance table and enjoy a casual dinner under the tent before or during the game. Reminisce with fellow football state champions as you cheer on this year's Trojan squad. We hope to have representation from each of our 13 state championship teams -- 1983, 1984, 1997, 1998, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015 -- under the tent.
You are invited to watch the game from this north end zone area, or you may sit in the bleachers if you prefer. You will be given a button at the time you check in and that will allow you to move between the tent area and the bleachers.
Please RSVP by August 30 to Margaret Ruffing at  mruffing@bishopchatard.org and include your year of championship. We would like to recognize the teams at half time.
We look forward to seeing you under the tent! Go Trojans!
