[Trinity] – The Trinity Knights Varsity Football (3-1), led by Coach Les Robinson, will play host to the Santa Clarita Christian Cardinals (0-4) this Saturday, October 1 at 7 p.m. as they battle it out to claim the title of Faith Bowl Champion 2016. The inaugural event last year brought out more than 1,500 fans with the expectation that even more will attend Saturday.

“There has always been a sense of community with Santa Clarita Christian, and even though there is mutual respect and admiration among the coaches and players, the fans should still expect a great night of football,” said Dr. Matthew Dixon, Director of Athletics for Trinity Classical Academy. “The Faith Bowl also gives us the opportunity to partner with like-minded businesses and institutions in Santa Clarita. The Master’s University, Chick-Fil-A, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, who are all sponsors for the Faith Bowl, will be on site to help make it be truly a special night for all in attendance.”

The Trinity Knights coaching staff continues to be top-notch under the direction of Coach Rob after the announcement of formerNFL Defensive Back Cletis Gordon of the Dallas Cowboys and San Diego Chargers last fall. Fred Lewis continues his role as the Defensive Coordinator, with Zack Schafer handling Special Teams, Kirk Morales supervising Wide Receivers and Geno Bernal taking care of the Offensive and Defensive Line.
The gates will open at 6:00 P.M. and admission is $5 a person. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) will sponsor the pre-game activities that will be sure to entertain and amuse even the littlest of football fans. The Master’s University will have give-aways and host several activities throughout the Faith Bowl that will entertain the fans and keep the energy high.
Trinity Jr. QB Tyler Lee (9) has thrown 362 yards and scored 5 touchdowns.
The 2016 Faith Bowl Championship Title, which went to the SCCS Cardinals last year, will be awarded to the winner of the game by Master’s University and the Faith Bowl MVP will be chosen by The Signal Sports staff.
To be sure everyone is well fed, the Valencia Chick-fil-A will be on-hand making several of their menu selections available for purchase, or families can pre-order their meals through Trinity’s online store the week prior.
