For the past 60 years, football's place at GU has been decidedly modest. The sport was dropped in 1951 for a variety of reasons, none particularly convincing, and thus began two decades of athletic deemphasis at Georgetown. Football returned not by administrative fiat, but by students who recognized the opportunity to compete as part of the overall educational experience. This is their story.

Current research topics in the project include:

  • Dates and locations for all games played by GU since it began football;
  • A complete list of over 2,300 alumni who have played on the varsity
  • Bios of all former head coaches, All-Americans, and Hall of Fame recipients;
  • Details on over 50 former Georgetown alumni that played in the National Football League

Not all data has been secured, however. The site is in need of team photos and other memorabilia. If you have an old program that you can photocopy and scan, e-mail, or send to us, contact us at info at Source material comes from a variety of media guides and game programs, numerous Google image searches, and cross-references with contemporary news accounts Changes can and will be made when identified, so if you see additions or corrections, please do not hesitate to contact me. I'm also hoping to make more additions in the years to come, such as adding team photos, but this involves permissions and locating teams to which a photo was not otherwise published.

Thanks for following the Hoyas, and of this site.
