Roman Catholic High School (Philadelphia, PA)
Football History

Game-by-Game Results vs. All Opponents
In Chronological Order

  Roman Catholic first played football in 1895. It was part of the Catholic
League for the first season, in 1920, and has remained there since; there
was no formal competition in 1929.

  Some notes . . . Egan is now Conwell-Egan, Bonner is now Bonner-Prendergast,
South Catholic became Neumann and is now Neumann-Goretti, Archbishop
Kennedy later merged with Bishop Kenrick to become Kennedy-Kenrick.
Chestnut Hill is now SCH Academy.

  Information for this page came from records provided by Dr. Roger B. Saylor,
a famed Pennsylvania football historian (he passed away in 2013); old Bulletin
Almanacs, personal records and research at https://www.newspapers.com.
