  • Football


    NO CUTS – Brophy welcomes any freshman who would like to play football to the Freshman Football program. Since there are no cuts, size dictates two divisions within the freshman program - Red division and White division. It is one team, however, that works together to train and support one another as they lay the foundation for a future varsity program.
