Renton Football 360 Program Turnaround

(Picture of Renton High School’s Football Coaches and Team.)

Renton High School Football had a reputation of being looked at as the “Easy Win” game. Teams felt that they didn’t have to worry about winning  the game against RHS. They thought that the win was guaranteed whenever Renton was scheduled, until 2021 when Renton Football was blessed with a new coaching staff.  They had plans to change the culture of Renton HS Football. These coaches have brought lots of success over the years, which is a testament to how much these coaches love the game and the players they coach.


Success Over The Years

Starting off the 2021 season, Renton only had about 30 players total on their varsity roster.  Yet due to grade checks, which had been a tradition for Renton High School for many years before, they were only able to play their first 5 games with 15 players. This did not stop this team from achieving their goal of making the  playoffs for the first time in 20 years. This was only the beginning of the incredible turnaround for the RHS football team. They have made the playoffs for 3 straight years, the 2 most recent years out of those 3 they have played for the league championship. All of this success comes from the commitment of the coaches and the way they got the players to buy in and want to  change the culture of this football team. To build a “program” rather than just having a “team.”
