Bishop Diego football to finally celebrate historic CIF State Championship

Posted: Updated:

Bishop Diego High School football made history during the 2017 football season after securing its first CIF State Championship title. Led by head coach Tom Crawford, Bishop Diego finished the season at 15-1 and ranked 27th in the state, according to MaxPreps.

Reaching that pinnacle was not an easy journey for the Cardinals. During the playoffs, the Thomas Fire erupted and forced evacuations and the worst air quality in Santa Barbara County.

The team had to relocate its practice schedule, limit practice hours, move practice indoors, and even relocate the CIF State Bowl game despite having home-field advantage. 

The Cardinals were forced to postpone its community celebration because after the Thomas Fire was the devastating and deadly mudslides. 

This weekend, players, family, faculty, and community members are invited to finally celebrate.

"We're planning on having a celebration this Sunday starting at 4 o'clock to celebrate not only the accomplishment of our student athletes but our whole community," said Dan Peeters, Bishop Diego Athletic Director. "In regards to the playoff run we were on, we were hopeful to celebrate several weeks back but given the state affairs here locally, it wasn't prudent so we're hoping to get together and celebrate."

The celebration will be held on Sunday, January 28th at Bishop Diego High School. There will be a BBQ hosted by the Cardinal Club at 4 p.m. A small ceremony will be held at the gym after at 6 p.m. There is no cost to attend.

The school asks to come together to share a meal, find strength, and give thanks.
