About the SJR Football Program


At Saint Joseph Regional High School (SJR), it is our mission to provide opportunities for all our students to pursue and develop well-rounded and healthy lifestyles.  We are committed to developing the gifts and talents of all of our student-athletes while maintaining an athletic program that continues our tradition of making history and building futures for all our Green Knights.

SJR Football Program Mission

SJR Football seeks to take grade school young men and teach them how to develop pride in themselves, their team and their school. Our athletes will fully understand what it means to dedicate themselves to the goals of the team.

The goals of our coaches are to develop leadership skills in each athlete, teach our athletes to handle and overcome adversity and most importantly begin each season as a team and end as CHAMPIONS. 

SJR Football fully understands that we are a component of the ultimate mission of St. Joseph Regional H.S.: developing the “Vir Fidelis” – The Faithful Man.
