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.
The 2021 CHS varsity football roster included 34 student-athletes: including eight seniors. The invaluable contribution of the senior players is recognized by players, coaches, and fans. Coach Hines commented, “This group of seniors showed more perseverance and heart than I’ve seen in a long, long time. Their contribution to our program will forever have an impact on who our Coronado football family is!”
