The mission of The Black Tiger Gridiron Alumni Club is to unite former Cuyahoga Falls High School football players, managers, coaches, and those who support Cuyahoga Falls football to make a positive contribution to the young men in the football program. The members will join together to support the team and provide financial assistance for the football program and scholarship assistance for a senior football player, senior band member and senior cheerleader who plan to continue their education.

2020 March Madness

We are looking for 64 participants…the first 64 to commit get to play!
$25.00 buy in gets you one team.
64 participants will generate $1,600.00
The Gridiron Club will receive $1,000.00 and winners will receive:
1st - $425.00 3rd - $50.00
2nd - $125.00 4th - $50.00

This will be a point spread tournament and we will be using the spread that is printed in the Akron Beacon Journal (Glantz-Culver Odds) the morning of the games. If you win the game according to the spread your name moves on to the next line even if it is a different team than you started with. You are rooting for the spreads not necessarily for a specific team. Your teams could change as the tournament moves on. More information regarding this tournament will be provided later.

Contact Mike Miller at or Todd Caruthers at if you would like to be a participant or have any questions.

Where Does Your Money Go?

All money raised through our donation program and events is used to operate the Gridiron Club and support the Black Tiger football program. Up to 80% of funds raised during the fundraising cycle (July 1st through June 30th) is donated to the current team. The balance is retained in the Akron Community Foundation, where the Gridiron Club has donor advised fund(s), to build up principal. Once $100,000 in principal is reached with the Akron Community Foundation fund, our goal is to put 80% of what we raise into the current football program. These thresholds can be re-evaluated with full Board of Directors approval.

The Board of Directors will continue to work closely with the head coach to determine how we can continue to assist the program (providing supplies, equipment, etc) in a way the head coach believes is necessary to help strengthen the program. The Gridiron Club will continue to supply snacks during summer two-a-day practices and provide Thursday night TEAM meals and pre-game meals each Friday night.

We want to fund the present and build for the future.
