SRV Thunderbirds Football & Cheer

Alumni

Since our first season in 1959, many talented athletes, coaches and board members have participated in our football and cheer program.

The contribution of our athletes is easily measured and many went on to successful high-school, college and pro careers.

Success of our alumni isn’t measured only by on-field performance.  The countless hours that our volunteers have contributed over the past 50 years is simply amazing.  Our organization is forever indebted to them for their vision, passion and commitment.

Below you will find a listing of those individuals who truly understood what T-Bird PRIDE meant and are part of our important history–and those who had great success after T-Birds.
