The football program at Andover is a well-respected program with a rich history. Many of the program’s alums have gone onto play college ball, and a few have even entered the professional ranks as both players and coaches. One of the program’s great traditions is its rivalry with Phillips Exeter Academy. The two school’s have competed on the football field for more than 100 years, making it the longest and oldest continuing prep school rivalry in the country.
Leon Modeste has served as the head varsity coach of Phillips Academy football since 1987.
During that time we have had good success on the field, and more importantly, in preparing our student-athletes for the next level. Many Phillips Academy players have gone on to play at the college level. Our graduates have played in games as local as Amherst and Williams, as storied as Harvard and Yale, and as glorious as the Rose Bowl.
