Pirates Football Reunion

Pirates Football Reunion

February 4, 2023

On Saturday, February 4, 2023, at the Elks Club in Oceanside, the OHS Pirate football community celebrated the magnificent coaching years of John Carroll at OHS – from 1989 to 2014.  Anyone who played or coached varsity football during those years was invited, and well over 250 formers players and coaches attended.  Many stories were told (some were even true!), memories shared, friendships rekindled and the chance to get to know brother Pirates from other years was provided as the attendees came together to celebrate the victories of OHS Pirate football during those years.
