The John Carroll University Football Captains Club was established in 2012 and is dedicated to celebrating the program, its sons and rich history. The Club is headed up by those men who were chosen by their teammates to lead years ago – the team captains. The focus of the group is social, historical and of general support for the Blue Streak football program.
We invite the team captain(s) of each year to serve as the point of contact for his group of seniors. The JCU Alumni Association and Athletic Department provides assistance with outreach, making it easier to connect with former teammates through the years. Captains have the option of creating their own newsletters, Facebook pages or general email threads while this website will serve as a home for player listings, archived photos and updates. The hope is that former players will rekindle their ties and interest with the program and the University, that this contact would be regular, natural, and mainly about participation and engagement. This initiative provides an opportunity to build an organization that will live on, one where no one will be forgotten, one in which history will be preserved and one on which the coaching staff can rely for assistance and support.
Please join your former coaches (Jerry Schweickert, Don Stupica, Frank Amato, Tony DeCarlo, Regis Scafe) and the many former captains already involved.
Contact Dave Vitatoe ’00, Director of Alumni Relations and football alumnus, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 216.397.1984 if you would like to become involved with the Captains Club or connect with your former team captain and teammates.
