The Athletic Department, knows the value of Foothill's Athletic experience in your child's life and we are happy to play a part in it!
Approximately 48% of our student body are involved in athletics and join the rich tradition that started in 1964 and has produced many great men and women in the past fifty years.
Being a part of the Century Conference adds to the thrill and excitement in each of our 24 sports. This is the one of the toughest leagues from top to bottom in the CIF Southern Section.
Fall sports (Boys & Girls Cross Country, Football, Girls Golf, Girls Tennis, Girls Volleyball and Boys Water Polo ) practice and compete from mid-August to mid November.
It is a great day to be a KNIGHT!
Dozens of teary-eyed students, colleagues and friends gathered at Foothill High School to unveil a brand new sports complex named after a former award-winning soccer coach who suffers from Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Barry Turner, 48, was a teacher at Hillview High School for 19 years and the head soccer coach at Foothill High for 23 years before he was forced to step down due to the auto-immune degenerative disease.
The celebrated teacher was wheeled into “Barry Turner Field” at Hillview, which is next to six pristine tennis courts, a softball stadium, and a soccer field.
He’s no longer able to speak, but appeared to be crying at the dedication.
“Barry is saying he loves everybody,” said his wife, Leanne. “He loves the game of soccer. In fact, he still watches it every day.”
Students said Turner did so much for a lot of people.
“It’s a great feeling to know he’s being recognized for all that he’s done. He really deserves it. He’s touched many hearts,” said Bridgette Serna.
When the ceremony was over, fans stood in line to hug the former “Teacher of the Year.”
