Our Program

Case Western Reserve University Football is committed to excellence both academically and athletically without sacrificing one for the other.   CWRU Football annually ranks amongst the nation’s leaders in team GPA, also boasting 13 Academic All-Americans since 2007 along with 3 semifinalists for the Draddy Trophy (commonly referred to as the academic heisman).

In addition to the success in the classroom we have excelled as a football program.  Since 2007 we have compiled a record of 98-28 with 4 appearances to the DIII playoffs and are consistently ranked in the top 25 in the country.  In the fall of 2017 we went to the 2nd round of the playoffs and finished the season ranked #13 in the country.
