Laker spirit abounds as football season arrives each September. Our home games are played in the beautiful Mercyhurst University Football Stadium following tailgate picnics on our adjoining MPS campus. For the past 25 years, MPS Laker football teams have advanced to the District 10 playoffs, experienced undefeated seasons, were regional champs multiple times and ultimately captured the District 10 title. This sport, which offers teams at both the JV & Varsity level, gives our student-athletes the chance to play right away, and as a perennial playoff team, a chance to WIN. Coach Jeff Root and his dedicated staff invite you to take your place as a Laker in our successful tradition of MPS football.
