Homecoming 2019 Activities

Father Ryan Football - now ranked 20th in the Midstate Region by Main Street Preps - will play host to the McCallie Blue Tornado tomorrow night in the 2020 Homecoming Game!

While Homecoming will not be filled with the usual celebrations this year, it will still be a special night to celebrate Father Ryan and its rich history. Homecoming Court will be presented, and the 2020 Homecoming Queen will be crowned at halftime.

Below is each member in this year's Homecoming Court.

  • Pride in the Pit

    Start off your Homecoming evening at the 7th Annual Pride in the Pit BBQ Contest from 5:00pm to 6:30pm before the Irish take on Germantown High School. There will be delicious barbeque to sample from our pitmasters and a live band for entertainment.

    Celebrity judges will determine whose barbeque has the most pride. Winners will receive a trophy, and of course, bragging rights for the rest of the year. All proceeds benefit Father Ryan Mission Trips.

    Enjoy barbeque tastings, hot dogs and sides for all. It is $25 per family or $10 for an individual. All proceeds benefit Father Ryan Mission Trips.

  • Homecoming Queen

    It happens at halftime, in the middle of the field, with an abundance of elegance and style. For at the center of every Homecoming Night is the presentation of the Homecoming Queen, a title proudly held at Father Ryan High School.

    For more than 65 years Father Ryan's Homecoming Queens have been the highlight of these memorable evenings. Whether the Court was made up of ladies from Cathedral High School, St. Bernard Academy or St. Cecilia Academy, as it was before 1971, or from Father Ryan ever since, the pride has always been on display.

    We are welcoming back our Homecoming Queens from the upcoming reunion years (classes ending in 1s and 6s). In addition, we have also invited all Homecoming Queens from 1949-1967 to join us. We will be presenting them at halftime on Homecoming Night prior to the introduction of the 2020 Court and Queen.

  • Honoring our Newest Golden Grad Class

    Every year at Homecoming, we honor our Golden Grads, the alumni class that will be celebrating their 50 year reunion in this upcoming calendar year. 

    This year we will be saluting and honoring graduates from the Class of 1971. They will serve as honorary captains for the Father Ryan Football Team.
