The Coronado High School (CHS) varsity football team finished a successful season with three wins and two losses. High school football is traditionally a fall sport, but the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the season until spring 2021. Under head coach Kurt Hines and assistant coach Mark Davis, the shortened five-game season concluded on April 16 with an away win against Crawford High School and CHS Football receiving the Central League Championship.

Their contribution to our program will forever have an impact on who our Coronado football family is!”
