ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP TO THE GRIDIRON CLUB IS $250.00 OUR GOAL IS TO REACH 1,000 MEMBERS!  ALL DONATIONS OVER $250.00 ARE WELCOME!

There has never been a better time to be a Blue Streak. Success on the field, in the classroom, and in the community are commonplace here at John Carroll, and our student athletes represent the very best that this institution has to offer. Our team has met every challenge these last few years with perseverance, grit, and a work ethic that has distinguished themselves as some of the hardest-working student athletes in all of Division III athletics. They show up everyday and work to become better. They understand that "actions speak louder than words" and that "well done is better than well said." Just as they have met every challenge they have faced, they are now challenging you to support the future of our team. 

I am excited to announce that this year’s John Carroll University Day of Giving on April 18th and 19th coincides with the re-launch and membership drive of the JCU Gridiron Club; the official Booster Club of JCU football. The Club will be run with a board of directors consisting of JCU football alumni who have a deep passion for advancing the program to new heights. The Gridiron Club is encouraging all members of the John Carroll football community to consider a minimum $250 annual gift to the football team for this year’s Day of Giving. We plan to utilize this support to enhance the nutritional resources for our players, elevate our recruiting capabilities, provide a better travel experience for the team and support a first-class coaching staff. 

To learn more about the Gridiron Club, please visit www.jcugridiron.org for more information. 

The theme of this year’s Day of Giving is “honoring our past, inspiring our future” and we encourage you to join parents, alumni, and supporters of John Carroll football to make a gift to the Gridiron Club in support of the football team.  Let’s make April 18th and 19th a historic time by re-engaging and reigniting our passion for the program.

Onward On!
