Welcome to HoyaSaxa.com. Here's where you will find more news and information than you'll ever need to know about Georgetown University football. If you're looking for the official athletics site instead, link here.
Georgetown is a football-only member of the Patriot League, the latest chapter in a gridiron tradition which began in 1874. Additional information on the rich history of football at Georgetown can be found at www.hoyafootball.com.

With the trend in football helmet designs that are more appropriate for merchandise sales than the gridiron, the announcement that Georgetown was debuting a new helmet might have raised some concerns in some circles. When the photos were posted on the athletic department's Georgetown equipment Twitter feed it was clear that while the helmet had changed, the traditional blue and gray design had not.
As helmets are evolving away from the one piece shell to a more ergonomically designed product to safeguard against injury, Georgetown is joining a number of schools introducing the Riddell 360 model. Its web site calls it "the first helmet design using energy managing materials and a face mask attachment system that disperses energy of frontal impacts."
Unlike some schools which change helmets by the week, the Georgetown design has been a stable one. The current helmet design has been in play since 1993, adding a "G" logo in the 2000 season. A review of all prior helmets can be found at the Georgetown Football History Project.
A pair of pre-season annuals have released their picks on the 2014 Patriot League race, with the nonscholarship Hoyas picked last:
6) Holy Cross
5) Holy Cross
