Gleaming smiles and new NFL hats were proudly worn by three former Eleanor Roosevelt High School students from the class of 2010, all of which have signed with teams in the NFL. Austin Hill signed with the Seattle Seahawks, Josh Mitchell with the Indianapolis Colts and Tyler Slavin with the St. Louis Rams, this marks a significant moment for Roosevelt High School, its football program and the entire CNUSD community. Josh, Austin and Tyler are Eleanor Roosevelt High School's first athletes to play in the NFL.
During the students’ football career at ERHS, all three players made First Team All-League. Austin Hill was awarded Riverside County Player of the Year and Most Valuable Player.
The three Roosevelt Alumni were the first graduating class to attend Roosevelt since their freshmen year. “When Austin, Josh and Tyler joined the football team, Roosevelt HS football stadium was still under construction causing them to practice at Harada Park and go to Auburndale Intermediate for weightlifting”, recalls Coach Stacy.
"I am honored to have coached them and it is an honor that they have turned out to be such great young men," said former ERHS Football coach, Coach Stacy.
