Who We Are
Behind the web site
For the past 60 years, football's place at GU has been decidedly modest. The sport was dropped in 1951 for a variety of reasons, none particularly convincing, and thus began two decades of athletic deemphasis at Georgetown that was not checked until John Thompson revived the basketball program in 1972. Football returned not by administrative fiat, but by students who recognized the opportunity to compete as part of the overall educational experience. This is their story.
What We Do
Current research topics in the project:
- Dates and locations for all games played by GU since it began football;
- A complete list of over 2,300 alumni who have played on the varsity
- Bios of all former head coaches, All-Americans, and Hall of Fame recipients;
- Details on over 50 former Georgetown alumni that played in the National Football League;
