Brotherhood values dedication in class, on field
If there is a theme for The Summit Country Day’s football program, it’s “family.”
The program prides itself in competing as a unit and growing throughout the course of a season. The Silver Knights’ football brotherhood values improvement on the gridiron and motivation to take the team to new heights.
The Summit advanced to the football playoffs every season from 2010-2014, 2016 and 2019 but its 2012 campaign was particularly special. That team posted a 10-0 regular-season record, won the program’s first Miami Valley Conference league title since 2008, captured the first playoff win in Summit football annals, advanced to a second playoff game and finished with an 11-1 record.
Summit football has built on that winning tradition, churning out winning seasons from 2016-2019, and again in 2022.
In 2023, Coach Mark Hafner served his first season has head coach of the Silver Knights varsity team. He has more than two decades of experience coaching high school football and previously was Summit's defensive coordinator from 2016-23. His prior roles provided opportunities to teach student athletes in all aspects of the game: defense, offense and special teams. He is assisted by a robust staff of assistant coaches.
