St. Patrick's Catholic Grade School boy's football begins each game day with an all-team Mass.

Putting God first in everything they do on and off the field.

During the month of October, the football team is dressing in pink to bring awareness and support to those struggling with a breast cancer diagnosis. On behalf of the team, a $5,000 donation has been made to the Kelly Cares Foundation, a nonprofit organization in South Bend, Ind., that supports health care organizations by funding valuable research and essential services as well as prevention programs and healthy-living initiatives.

St. Patrick Catholic School in St. Charles believes sports enhance the character and uplift the spirit of the school. The athletic program is open to students in fifth through eighth grade, with over 70 percent of students participating. The "everybody plays" philosophy allows students to participate and be part of a team. Sports teams include: boys and girls basketball, volleyball and cross-country; and boys football (fifth and sixth grade and seventh and eighth grade).
