Mandatory Incoming Freshman Parent Meeting Saturday June 24, 2017 9AM Edison Cafeteria
The Edison High School Charger Football coaches, teachers, alumni, and booster club would like to formally welcome you to Edison High School Freshman Football. Edison Charger Football recognizes that our Freshman Football Team is extremely important to the viability of the EHS football program. The EHS freshman coaches are very experienced and have over 2 decades of coaching experience They have been very successful in winning many consecutive Sunset League Titles. Freshman football, at Edison High School, introduces student-athletes to the school and the EHS football program. Traditionally, the EHS freshman football team ends up with a mix of student-athletes who are playing organized football for the first time to some experienced/semi-experienced players. If you are considering playing freshman football, keep in mind, that as a player, you will need a full commitment to the team and to your academics.
