CHS Football

There will be a Centennial High School Football Program parent and player meeting for all returning and new players and parents on Wednesday, May 22 at 6:30 in the CHS Media Center.  At this meeting,

we will discuss our offseason and season schedules, review expectations, hand out paperwork, and introduce newcomers to the coaching staff.  This is a mandatory meeting for all players interested in playing football this fall.


This fall, CHS Football will play an independent football schedule against teams from Maryland counties that had no more than 3 victories during the 2018 season.  This schedule provides the CHS football program with a great opportunity to continue to improve skills and experience success during the 2019 season.


If you have any questions, please contact Coach Martin at william_martin@hcpss.org


Hope to see you there.
