NAIA National Football Championship Header

The Raiders are heading back to Daytona Beach, Florida, to play for the NAIA National Football Championship, and we’ve been fortunate to have outstanding young men and dedicated coaches take our program to this elite level in three of the last four seasons.   One of the most rewarding aspects during these runs is watching alumni, fans and parents give the team outstanding support and show such pride in the school we love.

Behind Coach Howard and now Coach Hall and his staff, the SOU football team has become one of the most recognized programs in the nation.  But, as you might expect, taking a full roster of 75 players, coaches, and other essential folks across country is expensive. We expect this trip to cost an estimated $200,000 when factoring in charter, accommodations, ground transportation, and food.

Our goal is to raise the entire $200,000 from our closest supporters, as our budget for post-season play already has been exhausted. Please help us get our boys back to Daytona as they pursue another National Championship and represent SOU on the national stage.

Thank you for your support.
