Every fall, schools from across America call their former students back to campus to reunite the far-flung members of their extended families. It is a tradition called Homecoming. Tampa Catholic has celebrated Homecoming since its early football teams began playing in the 1960's. Unfortunately, the team was never able to play its Homecoming game, or any games at home. Even without a stadium on the campus, the Crusader faithful made where ever they played their home games their field and Crusader Spirit was famous in the Tampa area.
On October 21, 2005, undaunted by impending hurricane Wilma, an overflow crowd watched the Crusaders defeat Admiral Farragut Academy 27-7 for their first homecoming game at home and first-ever home win.
Today, Crusader students, alumni and their families enjoy the electric atmosphere of Crusader home games in Crusader Stadium. Homecoming is a time when all Crusaders can now cheer their team on to victory in a home environment.
Please join your TC family at any or all of the 2017 Homecoming festivities. It’s an annual tradition, a chance to make memories that last a lifetime. Get ready to kick off with Spirit Week and end with the big dance. We hope all our students, alumni and TC families will participate in this year’s events.
