Roncalli Football Team

2014 Season Review

The Rebel football team battled through Class 4A’s toughest schedule to post a 7-6 record and capture the program’s 17th sectional championship.  In their march to the title, the Rebels defeated Northwest (42-0), Bishop Chatard (31-6) and Plainfield (24-17) to earn the sectional crown.  The title was the 49th postseason trophy in the program’s history. The postseason home win over fourth-ranked Bishop Chatard in the sectional semifinal snapped the Trojans’ 39-game sectional winning streak.  The Roncalli defense, which was ranked in the top 10 in Class 4A in fewest points allowed, became the first Indiana team to keep Bishop Chatard out of the end zone since 2005.  In the regular season, the Rebels won at Brebeuf Jesuit, beating the second-ranked Braves 21-17.  The Rebels played five teams – Southport, Martinsville, Decatur Central, East Central and Plainfield – that played for a sectional title and all six of the Roncalli losses were to teams ranked in the top 10 of their respective classes.
