About ReitzFootball.com: The Unofficial Reitz High School Football Home Page
Just as the Reitz Football team prides itself in excellence on the field, ReitzFootball.com prides itself in online excellence.
It is the goal of ReitzFootball.com to provide the most accurate and in-depth coverage of F. J. Reitz High School Football and its rich history as possible.
It is also our goal to help the players of today and tomorrow learn more about the tradition which they are becoming a part of, so that when they play in the Bowl, it is more than just a football field to them.
While ReitzFootball.com is not affiliated with F. J. Reitz High School or the EVSC, Reitz Football has given much to me, and I am honored to give a small portion back through this site, to both the school, program, coaches, fans and players.
