Welcome to the Football Page

With the 2023 season rapidly approaching, new challenges and opportunities ascend on the horizon. As we transition into the Gulf South Conference, a premier Division II conference, for the next couple of years, our student athletes will have the opportunity to compete against some of the most talented athletes in Division II football and shine in front of storied gameday atmospheres of several recent national champions. In accordance with the elevation of competitive experience, one of our primary goals is to elevate the on-campus experience for our student athletes with the construction of a new locker room. In order to achieve this goal, we need all hands on deck! While every dollar counts, one of the unique opportunities to engrave your place in Chowan football history is to donate a locker for $1,000. With this donation, there will be a plaque placed in the locker with your name or the name of someone you would like to dedicate it to. With the support and commitment from fans, alumni, and the community, we will be able to provide a space where our student athletes can hangout, create memories, and cherish as a home away from home. Please join in as we continue to elevate the Chowan football program and reach new heights.

Football Locker Room Refresh Challenge
Calling on all football alumni, friends and fans to give CU football’s locker room a fresh look. The program is in need of 130 new lockers. An anonymous donor will match each gift of $1,000 for the first 20 lockers. With your $1,000 contribution, you will be given the opportunity to name a locker in memory or in honor of someone.
