SRA Football Program 2017

The St. Raphael Academy football program has a long and storied history.  The program has won 15 state titles and appeared in 11 Super Bowls, winning 7, since the Super Bowl format was instituted in 1972.

The program is led by Mike Sassi ’86, who is entering his 19th season as head coach.  He has been named Nike Division II Coach of the Year (1999), RIIL Division I Coach of the Year (2003, 2007),  RIIL Coach of the Year (2007) and RIIL Division II-A Coach of the Year (2015).  Coach Sassi has led SRA to 4 Super Bowls, winning titles in 1999 and 2007.

The program has alumni currently playing for:  Harvard, Utah State, Sacred Heart, North Carolina State, University of Rhode Island, Bryant University, and Norwich.  Over the past decade, other SRA football alumni have played at Boston College, Temple, University of New Hampshire, Bucknell, Brown University, Nichols College, Bridgewater State, Dean College, Salve Regina, and Merrimack.

SRA Football does not cut any players that come out for the team.  We welcome all to experience being part of the SRA football tradition.
