Letter from Coach Lynch
Hello Caravan Football Family,
The Gridiron Club is an opportunity to help invest in the Mount Carmel Football program. The focus of Gridiron Club is to provide our players with the very best equipment that allows them to play this great game as safely as possible.
We are about 4 months into our off-season strength and conditioning program, and can’t wait for the summer to get here. During my first year as Head Coach of the Caravan, I never fully realized the impact that our Alumni, family, and friends , has on the success of the football program. Now, after being on the job for a little over a year, I can see that your support directly affects the program in so many ways.
Safety is the number our main goal, helmet and shoulder pad technology continues to evolve. With your help, we are able to purchase state-of-the-art helmets that protect our student-athletes. But as with everything else, that new technology comes at a higher price. With each helmet costing $350, and shoulder pads costing $300, you can imagine how the budget for football has increased in recent years. Additional costs include cleats ($120) and apparel ($140). With all that being said, it costs almost $1000 to suit up a Mount Carmel Player from head to toe. Our commitment to safety is very important, and the financial support of the Gridiron Club helps Mount Carmel provide safe and affordable opportunities for the 200 student-athletes who put on the Brown and White to play football for the Caravan.
