Welcome to Lions Football.
We are very excited to have you as members of our proud football family steeped in over 4 decades of football tradition, and reaching new heights of success every year.
Pope John XXIII Regional High School is proud to play in one of the best high School conferences in the nation and toughest divisions in the State of New Jersey. Pope John Football players thrive on competition on and off the field-- and success in the classroom is as important as success on the football field. Lions players know that accomplishment comes from their commitment to hard work, their belief in the team concept and that football is a resource to help advance their future endeavors.
Today, our Lions are preparing and playing more like a college football program than a high school program. Our coaches and players know that success is earned, not given. As a result, a number of our players are receiving national attention as well as offers from Div I, II and III colleges and universities.
We are thrilled to extend our Lions Football program to include a second level of Jr Lions Football which will focus on the development and preparation of youth players enrolled in Pope John Middle School and destined to attend Pope John XXIII High School.
Brian Carlson, Head Football Coach
Pope John XXIII High School
“Faith. Family. Football."
