By Staff, 08/28/23, 8:00AM CDT


Cretin-Derham Hall will take on Saint Thomas Academy at TCO Stadium in Eagan to continue our heated rivalry in football. This rivalry goes back over a century. As part of an agreement with the Minnesota Vikings, this annual game will take place at TCO Stadium for the next two seasons.

The Raiders have a number of returning players this season under 2nd year head coach Steve Walsh '85 who continues work towards the championship standard of Raider football that was established when he played for the Raiders. Walsh won a National Championship at the University of Miami and played 11 years in the NFL, in addition to coaching both professional and high school football.
