Football

Jesuit football has great tradition, including a state championship in 1968, state runner-up in 1992, and state semifinals several times, most recently last season, 2015, when the Tigers went 13-1. The team plays in the shadow of the majestic Jesuit Bell Tower before large, raucous crowds at Alumni Field at Corral Memorial Stadium, which received a state-of-the-art resurfacing in 2015. The powerful presence of the Blue Tide student fans has helped Jesuit defeat rival Tampa Catholic 16 straight seasons, including 35-20 in 2015, when Malik Davis '17 rushed for a school-record 357 yards. Every year several Tigers sign to play football in college, and numerous Jesuit alums have played in the NFL, including Jay Feely '94, who was one of three finalists for the NFL Man of the Year award in 2014. The Tigers claimed a third straight District title in 2015 and advanced to the Class 5A semifinals before succumbing to state champion Orlando Bishop Moore. See below for the schedules, rosters, and more.
