The Chargers had high expectations for the 2017 - 2018 season after making the playoffs the previous season. The Chargers began the campaign against Elmwood Park in which they lost a tough fought game. The team would respond with a vengeance and win games in weeks two and three. The following game would end in a disappointing loss, but the team responded again with a win in week five. The remainder of the season would leave the team with plenty of highs and lows but the team was ultimately unable to achieve another win leading up to their loss to Leo.
The St. Joseph Junior Varsity Football Team compiled a 4-3 record in the 2017-2018 season. What this team lacked in roster size, these boys made up for with heart. This JV team was filled with a lot of talent that will develop into great varsity football players. After overcoming many obstacles this season, the Chargers finished with a huge 50-38 victory over Aurora Christian.
