Attention Big Red Nation:

The road to a 10th CIF Championship can start with you!

The Vista High Football Team is in need of a number of team sponsorships for the 2015 Season. 

The VHS Football Family strives to provide an atmosphere that fosters dedication, pride, and ultimately success. Our goal is to maintain the safest and most successful environment possible for all players.

To transport 100-125 players and coaches to games each week creates a huge commitment of funds. Our hopes are that the Big Red community will rally together to find a way to get our players to games safely. Whether you are a parent of a player, Big Red Alumni, a local business or one of our loyal Big Red Fans, your help in this quest would be appreciated in the form of the following sponsorship opportunities:
