Egg Harbor Township High School
Announcements and Important Events
Friday Night Lights at Silver Eagle Stadium will look a little different in 2023!
On April 25th, The Egg Harbor Twp. Board of Education officially named Robert Davis to lead the next chapter of the Egg Harbor Township Football Eagles!
When the 2023 football season begins, there will be very few, if any, sidelines with more coaching success than the Egg Harbor Township Eagles. In just 15 season, Coach Davis led Barnegat to 82 victories, four conference championships, four division titles, a group final appearance, and several Coach of the year honors. All the more impressive when you factor Coach Davis started the football program at Barnegat.
With nearly three decades of football coaching experience, Coach Davis passion for the game is stronger than ever. “I’m excited, so excited. I’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to get back on a football sideline and when this position opened up I knew immediately it was a perfect fit. My family knew it was a perfect fit. We’re going to get kids in the right spots to be successful both on the field and off. For those that want it, we’re going to get them into college. I’m relentless for my kids. I’m known for getting kids into college but my kids will tell you, it’s about relationships and I will make sure anyone willing to be a part of this knows how important they are because everyone is important.”
Athletic Director, Kevin Rutledge, echoed the excitement. “When you begin the hiring process, there are so many factors at play. None more so than the timing of all involved. Coach Davis’ availability for the students of Egg Harbor Township is a dream come true for any school district. His passion for helping children be their best at life and football is absolutely contagious. I’m truly excited for not only the football athletes but the thousands of students and community members that support our team’s efforts on Friday Nights. For the past 20 years, Coach Davis has been one of the best football coaches in South Jersey, and we couldn’t be more excited to get him in black and silver and maximizing our student-athlete’s potential.
