The Kent Football program has been in existence for over 100 years. While the players and coaches have changed, and systems have come and gone, the lessons the game teaches to young people have never changed.
Kent football players speak without saying a word. Our players are of high moral character, engaged citizens, servant leaders, and eager to make a positive impact on the people and the world around them.
Kent plays one of the most challenging schedules in Class A New England prep school football. Many home games are played under the lights with crowds that are the envy of any school. Kent Football is a storied program, claiming eight league championships, five New England Championship game berths, and two New England titles in the past 18 years.
Our program is built on Three Guiding Principles:
- Relentless Effort - the individual's ability to perform every act with the utmost passion and commitment.
- Competitive Excellence - the individual's ability to put obstacles and emotion aside and compete with passion, resilience, and love.
- Power of the Team - the individual player can be elite, but the individuals who play for love of the team can be special.
Coach Wayne Clarke
Welcome to Kent Football. My name is Wayne Clarke and I am the head football coach at Kent School. I have had the good fortune of coaching football for over 20 years, serving as both a coordinator and head coach while striving to positively affect the lives of hundreds of young people along the way. While many of my former players have gone on to have successful collegiate careers at places like Virginia Tech, Georgia, Oregon, Ole Miss, Colgate, Monmouth, and Yale, to name a few, what I am most proud of is my former players who are tremendous husbands, fathers, and community members.
