The Calvary Christian football program secured its football future for the fall of 2011 yesterday when it was officially accepted into theIndependent Christian Schools of Georgia and Alabama Athletic Association
Calvary athletic director and football coach Brian Osborne said he got word Tuesday his school had been admitted and will join a pool of Atlanta-area schools in 11-man football next season.
“I sat down with the (ICSGA) president last week, and it sounds like 11 or 12 schools in Georgia want to play 11-man football next year,” Osborne said. “So we should be able to have a full schedule from the league with all of the teams in Atlanta. We’re the farthest south, and there are no Alabama schools that want to play 11-man football next year.”
Last season the ICSGA had seven teams divided into two divisions playing 11-man football, and each played at least nine games. The ICSGA has one division for 11-man football, and Osborne said Calvary's enrollment puts it squarely in the middle of the pack.
Osborne said he expects Calvary's 2011 schedule to be set next week.
Osborne is a former Brookstone assistant coach who was hired in July as the school’s athletic director and to head up starting a football program.
