Important Player Information

Team Ike prevails in Alumni Game
7/26/15 - Over 60 players got a chance to put on a St. Joe jersey again, and like he did 211 times during his 34 year career at St. Joe, Coach Ike Muhlenkamp walked off the field a winner. Coach Ike Muhlenkamp's squad defeated Coach Elliot Uzelac's team 35-21 in the first ever Alumni Game at Dickinson Stadium. While we did keep score, everybody who took part was a winner as we kicked off this milestone season. The 2015 Season, the 100th in St. Joe history will open with the first day of practice on August 10. #sjfb100
