Football - Boys 1st Team

The Brooks Football program is in the midst of an exciting time in its storied history. Over the past five seasons, the team has made three trips to New England Preparatory School Athletic Council Championship Bowl games, winning two NEPSAC championships (2017 and 2014) as well as a share of the Independent School League Championship in 2016. The team is striving to continue its success both on the field and within the larger school community.

Brooks competes in the 16-school Independent School League, playing an eight-game schedule against some of the top talent and teams in New England. The team plays its home games on Anna K. Trustey Memorial Field, a synthetic grass field that was completed in 2014 and is the finest venue in the league.

The program aims to teach its members to prepare and play with great effort and intelligence. The football field is an extension of the classroom. Brooks Football players will hopefully learn as much about themselves and about life from playing football as they do from any other one area at the school. Within this process, the team will experience the joy of success and be rewarded for their hard work.

Brooks Football players have gone on to play in the Ivy League, the Patriot League, the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC), and at a number of other excellent colleges throughout the country. Brooks alums have also competed at the highest level of college football, at schools such as Penn State, Brigham Young University, Boston College and The United States Military Academy (West Point). For those interested in continuing to play at the college level, Brooks football will prepare them for the challenge.
