History of Lansdale Catholic (Lansdale, PA)

Return to TedSilary.com Home Page

 This page details some of the football history of Lansdale Catholic High
in Lansdale, PA. The Crusaders played one game in the 1952 season
and stayed with a non-league schedule through 1960. They have since
played in five leagues/conferences -- Suburban Catholic League (1961-66),
Inter-County Conference (1968-80), Bicentennial Athletic League (1981-85),
Pioneer Athletic Conference (1986-2007) and Philadelphia Catholic League
(2008-16). They also played a non-league schedule in 1967.
  LC was coached for 44 seasons (1968-2011) by
Jim Algeo.
