Competing on the gridiron for over a century, Bridgton Academy Football has a proud past and a storied tradition that continues today. Exclusively enrolling postgraduates since 1965, Bridgton Football has prepared thousands of young men for the next step in their lives – on the field, in the classroom, and in life. The postgraduate year [between high school and college] offers our students an additional year of academic, social, and athletic maturity while maintaining all four years of NCAA Eligibility.
Our schedule includes college junior varsity teams such as Princeton, Columbia, Dartmouth, Bryant University, Endicott College, and the Naval Academy Preparatory School. This competition level allows our young men to gain additional recruiting exposure and college-level playing experience that are second to none.
Among others, our recent football alumni have matriculated to:
Baylor University, Michigan State University, Florida State University, Georgetown University, University of Nebraska, University of Georgia, Marshall University, University of Massachusetts, University of Maine, University of New Hampshire, Holy Cross College, Vanderbilt University, Dartmouth College, Brown University, Columbia University, Bowdoin College, University of Chicago, Colby College, Wesleyan College, and Carnegie Mellon University.
Bridgton Academy has also seen several young men go onto professional careers, and we have two Super Bowl Champions: Jermaine Wiggins (New England Patriots ’01) and Victor Cruz (New York Giants ’11).
