Flag Football

Afterschool Sports returns to Thacher! Thirty students have been under the tutelage of Coach Tom, assisted by Brian Kaehler and Renay Bane. Students have embraced the Hawk Spirit over the first four sessions and have been drafted to four football teams practicing and competing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The four teams are the New England Patriots, Los Angeles Chargers, University of Virginia Cavaliers, and Boston College Eagles.

There has been an incredible amount of positive energy and growth over the past two weeks, and we look forward to evolving as teammates and competitors for the remaining four weeks of the season. GO HAWKS!

Special thanks to the graduating class of 2020 for creating and marketing our Thacher Hawks logo. Their legacy lives on in our mascot!
