Our Mission is to support the Ridge High Football Program and to lead fundraising activities and help support football operations. We are a 501c3 Non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors with the ongoing help and support of many of the parents.
This website was developed out of a need to have a central place for parents, players, fans, alumni and students to find info, news, updates, schedules, scores, stats and standings on the Ridge High School football team. Its sole intent is to promote the team and it's players, generate enthusiasm in the school and among the alumni and create interest in the community. It is a place for those who cannot get out to the games to follow the team's progress.
Funds raised all go back to the program to help pay for Non-BOE paid coaches, player events, equipment not covered by school budget, special events, etc. In past years we’ve funded new video equipment, upgrades to the snack shack counters, HUDL software, the Grill, the sound system and most recently the new locker room floor.
A little trivia here. So why are we Green if we're the Red Devils? When Ridge High School was established in 1961, splitting from Bernards High School in Bernardsville, NJ, the land the school sits on was donated by the Red Devil Paint Company. As part of that arrangement, Ridge High School was to forever be known as the Ridge Red Devils. Our newly minted cross town rivals, Bernards High School, was already outfitted in red however. So Ridge went green. We are sometimes referred to, tongue in cheek, as the "Green Devils", particularly when playing Skylands Conference foe Hunterdon Central, Red Devils that they are!
