Started in 1997, the introduction known as "The Walk" has become what is now one of the most
electrifying introductions in football. The Saints march from the field house to the Champions Stadium
gate while the chilling pre-game music plays. Upon getting to the gate the Saints see their fans lined up
and the gold helmet and tunnel ready for them to take the field. Smoke, fireworks, videos and music
make for just one more thing that takes Shiloh Football to the next level.
Game Morning Prayer
Shiloh football players meet at the Champions Stadium gates every game morning after breakfast and
pray over that nights game.
The Saints are fortunate enough to have devotions catered by area restaurants every Thursday after a
walk through practice. A good meal and fellowship with teammates is another unique experience at SC.
Dad Spirit Line
When playoff time comes at Shiloh, everyone knows you take it to another level. This is exemplified by
the Saints dads lining the sideline and welcoming the players onto the field for warm-ups.
Father Son Retreat
In 2008, the Saints started the Father Son Retreat. Now held annually every August, it is a time for the
seniors , dads, and coaches to get away and spend time together before fall camp starts. During this
time the seniors will set their goals for their season, both on and off the field, and the coaches will
challenge the seniors to be leaders spiritually, in the classroom, and on the field.
Thanksgiving Day Practice
The Saints are regularly playing deep into the playoffs on thanksgiving. As a result of this, the early
morning practice has become one of the best traditions at Shiloh. Many parents and fans come and
watch the Saints prepare at this special practice.
Thanksgiving Bon Fire Pep Rally
On the day before the Thanksgiving week game, the pep rally is anything but ordinary. A giant bon fire
accompanies the Shiloh band and cheerleaders on a cold November night.
State Championship Week
Every time the Saints make it to "The Rock" to play for another State Championship, the festivities make
for an unforgettable experience. The players, band, cheerleaders, and fans all stay at the Embassy
Suites in Little Rock. Interaction between all of the pieces that make Shiloh Football successful makes
the week another unique time. The night before the game, there is a huge pep rally outside of The Sports
Authority that gets the fans ready for the Saints to bring home another trophy.
The Night Before The Rock
Started in 2008, this has become one of the most memorable traditions for Shiloh Christian football
players. When the Saints make it to the State Championship game in Little Rock, the team will meet the
night before the game. This is a private, special time for just the coaches and players. The meeting will
start with some film and game planning. Next, players will lead a time of praise and worship, thanking
our Lord and Savior for another successful season. The night is capped off by each senior talking to his
football FAMILY, challenging them not only for the next day's game, but also for the future.
Navy and Gold
Shiloh Christian's orginial school colors were Royal Blue and Yellow. In 1994, the Saints went to Navy
Blue and Gold colors and got new uniforms. 1997 brought the "Notre Dame look", when the Saints broke
out the replica uniforms and changing the school colors to Navy Blue and Vegas Gold.
When the Saints Go Marching In
"Oh, when the saints go marching in
Oh, when the saints go marching in
Lord how I want to be in that number
When the saints go marching in"
All of the Fathers will wear their sons jersey at every playoff game as a proud representation of who they
are. This is a tradition that was started back in 1997 at the very first State Championship game.
