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 four winning seasons in a row from 2016-2019.
Coach Justin Isaacs took the helm of The Summit football program in 2017 after serving as the interim coach for one season and an assistant coach for seven seasons. During his tenure as head coach, Summit has not had a losing season. In addition to being a 2005 Reading High School graduate and 2010 University of Phoenix graduate, Coach Isaacs played Arena Football for eight years. The former running back is a member of the Cincinnati Semi-Pro Football Hall of Fame. Justin is assisted by Michael Barwick, Ben Davis, Austin Newman, Joe Pollitt, Walter Voline, Steven Craig, Mark Hafner and Sam Rhodes.
