The St. Olaf Touchdown Club exists for one reason; to support the St. Olaf Football program and the lifelong development of its student athletes from their experience in intercollegiate football and beyond.

So, what does this exactly mean?  To really understand what the St. Olaf Touchdown Club is all about, let's take a look at our goals...

  • Build Community:  Whether it be online or along the sideline, we want to provide a gathering place for the Ole Football family.   From former players to coaches, parents, staff, faculty, students, fans, and even equipment managers - we strive to strengthen the sense of community amongst all stakeholders in St. Olaf Football. 
  • Garner Financial Support:  Football is a sport that increasingly requires significant financial resources.  Do we think it is worth the investment in the lives of the young men that choose to join St. Olaf Football?  Absolutely we do. 
  • Help Spread the Word:  Playing football at St. Olaf is not for everyone, and finding those fit to be an Ole student athlete is not easy.  We aim to provide our coaching staff with the resources they need to recruit those who have what it takes to carry the tradition and play St. Olaf Football, in accordance with NCAA regulations.
  • Expand the Network:  The bond developed through football at St. Olaf last a lifetime.  It is our goal to foster a network that perpetuates this bond beyond the Hill and brings Ole Football players and supporters from all eras together; whether it be for camaraderie, educational, or professional development.  
  • Keep the Tradition:  Football at St. Olaf College has a long and storied history.  In different ways, this history contributes to each of our own personal histories.  We strive to keep this rich tradition alive by honoring those who have gone before us, and sharing their stories with current and future generations of Oles.
