Football

 

After a long hiatus, Falcons football was relaunched in 2006, and the steady climb up the ladder of success began with the hiring of Head Coach Tod Creneti in 2011.

Creneti’s previous coaching resume included successful stops at St. Petersburg Lakewood, Melbourne Central Catholic, and St. Petersburg Catholic. The Philadelphia native, who played quarterback at NCAA Division III Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania during the early 1990s, took over a program that had won just 17 games in the five seasons since its reinstatement. After a winless first campaign at SSES, Creneti’s program has soared.

The Falcons have posted consecutive winning seasons since 2013 and are a combined 23-10 during that stretch. The 2015 squad (9-2) set a school record for wins and collected the program’s first two post-season victories, winning at Lecanto Seven Rivers Christian (56-37) and Boca Raton Christian (35-0), before falling to Lakeland Santa Fe Catholic in the Sunshine State Athletic Conference Florida Bowl Championship in Orlando.

The Falcons offense averaged more than 350 yards and nearly 40 points per game, while the defense held seven opponents to 10 points or less and recorded a pair of shutouts. Individually, quarterback Fred Billy accounted for 33 touchdowns (18 rushing and 15 passing) and nearly 2,000 total yards. Demetrius Davis, Ace Murrell, and Alex Virgilio combined to produce more than 1,400 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns. All return for a 2016 team that loses just two seniors and is poised to continue its run of success.

The emergence of Saint Stephen’s football has clearly created a new sense of excitement on campus. Friday game nights have become prime-time events, thanks to the high-powered Falcons and the opening of the state-of-the-art Moore Athletic Complex in 2013.

Despite its brief football history, Saint Stephen’s has also had great success finding opportunities for its student-athletes at the collegiate level. In each of the past four seasons, at least one Falcon has moved on to a NCAA Division I FBS or FCS program: Linebacker/tight end Tim Nutter (Furman 2013), linebacker Bradley Beazant (Rice 2014), offensive lineman Wyatt Knopfke (Boston College 2015), and long snapper Jacob Westberry (Fresno State 2016).
