You’d be hard-pressed to find a high school football program with more pride and history than Gonzaga—which this year will play its 129th season. Today, the Eagles are always one of the top teams in the highly competitive WCAC. And cheering them on has become a cherished tradition on Eye Street.
This fall, Head Coach Randy Trivers will enter his fourth year coaching at Gonzaga. During that time, he’s compiled a 29-8 record, including winning back-to-back DCSAA AA State Championships in 2014 and 2015. Trivers was also named the WCAC Coach of the Year and USA Today’s Washington DC Coach of the Year in 2015.
Coach Trivers has been coaching football for 22 years, including 15 years as head coach of three different football programs. He was the first coach in the history of Northwest High School in Germantown, Maryland, where in nine seasons he led the team to five Division Championships, three Regional Championships, and one State Championship. He was also the Head Coach at Leesburg High School in Leesburg, Florida, for four seasons where he led the team to four straight winning seasons, two state playoff appearances, and its first home playoff win and District Championship since 1969.
In recent years, Coach Trivers has led the Eagles to a 29-8 record in three seasons including back-to-back DCSAA State Championship Titles.
Coach Trivers attended the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts, where he played running back and earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a concentration in African American Studies. After college, he earned a Masters degree in Education at the University of Maryland, College Park. A member of Gonzaga’s English Department, Trivers teaches Classic Literature and African American Literature. He and his wife, Amanda, have two sons, Rex and Rhys.
