Rifle High School football is an organization dedicated to achieving excellence on and off the field. Our players are true student athletes, and the program boasts multiple state championships, both on the field and in the classroom.
Our mascot is a bear. Our colors are blue and gold. Our history is storied with teams competing as early as the 1920s. The Bears currently compete in Colorado’s 2A Western Slope League and are led by head coach Damon Wells.
Officials and fouls
The seven officials on the field are each tasked with a different set of responsibilities:
- The referee is positioned behind and to the side of the offensive backs.
- The umpire is positioned in the defensive backfield, except in the NFL
