2017 St. Joseph High School Varsity Football Team (12 - 1, CT State Champions)
The St. Joseph High School Cadets are one of the most highly decorated programs in Connecticut high school football history, having won a total of thirteen state championships (1980, '81, '82, '83, '84, '88, '89, '90, '09,'10,'13, '14 and '17) since a state playoff system was instituted in 1976. Most recently, in 2017, St. Joseph won the Connecticut Class S State Championship with a 42-36 victory over Ansonia at Cheshire High School.
Nicknamed the "Hogs" since the early 1980's, the current Head Coach is Joe DellaVecchia, who took over the program in 1998. DellaVecchia, the 2017 CHSCA Coach of the Year, is a graduate of St. Joseph's (1981), a former player under Coach Ed McCarthy, and has earned the unique distinction of winning a state championship as a player, an assistant coach, and a head coach at the same school. Former head coaches of the Cadets include the aforementioned McCarthy (three state titles at St. Joe's), and Christy Hayes (five state titles at St. Joe's). McCarthy is the former head coach at West Haven HS, and ranks as the all-time victories leader in Connecticut football history with 332 wins, including four additional state titles.
