A PROUD TRADITION SINCE 1882
Fordham football has played on some of the largest stages in sports. Our history includes games before sellout crowds at the Polo Grounds and Yankee Stadium, a Cotton Bowl appearance and a Sugar Bowl victory, the famed Seven Blocks of Granite (including Vince Lombardi, FCRH ’37), the resurrection of the sport at Rose Hill with the club teams of the 1960s, and our most recent highlight, winning the Patriot League championship in 2002 and 2007. Through the years, each team has shared a love for the game and the University – a tradition that remains alive today.
Chris Hodge, CBA’04, a member of the Fordham football team that won the Patriot League title in 2002, was among the scores of former players who returned to Rose Hill on Sept. 21 to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Fordham football.
