The Sebastian Sharks Football program had back-to-back winning seasons in 2018 and 2019 under Coach Tyrone Perry
who just completed his third season as Head Coach for the Sharks and his 26th coaching season at Sebastian River High School.
The Sebastian Sharks finished the 2019 season with a 6-3 record and narrowly missed the State of Florida
playoffs by percentage points.
2020 brought a fall football season unlike any other, but the Shark Gridiron
stood up to the challenge.
With a roster of over 80 Varsity and Junior Varsity players and the leadership
of 9 returning seniors,
the 2020 Shark Football Team grinded its way to the 2nd Round of the Class 6A Region 3 and 4" tournament;
only the second team in Sebastian River High School history to play in the
2nd Round of the State Playoffs.
SO WHAT'S NEW IN 2021?
In the off-season, the SRHS Football Family proudly watched not one, but two Shark Football Alumni (Jarez Parks & Tim Smith) compete in the Rose Bowl and play with Alabama to win a
National Football Championship;
the first time for any Indian River County school football program .
In 2021, our parent and community Board has achieved the next level and brought the formation of the Sebastian River Gridiron Association, a not-for-profit focused on supporting the Shark players and Coaching Staff on-and-off the field.
This 501(3)(c ) proudly awarded over $2000 in college scholarships
for our graduating Seniors this Spring.
Players and Coaches have worked hard through the off-season and it showed on May 20th in Kissimmee. The 2021 Sebastian River High School Shark Football Team took the field for the first time in their Spring Game against Gateway High School. At Half, Sharks lead 21-0. At the end of the 3rd, Sharks increased the lead to 35-0, and went on to beat the Gateway Panthers 42-7.

Sharks believe that sportsmanship doesn't stop at the edge of the field. Our players aren't just members of a team; they are members of the Sebastian/Vero community. Each season the Shark Gridiron invites the IRC community to “wear blue” and join them for two exciting Friday night football matchups: The Autism Awareness Game and the Annual Military Appreciation Game honoring Veterans and Active Duty personnel. Sadly, because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the need for safe social-distancing, we were unable to host these community events during our 2020 season but we are looking forward to continuing these traditions in 2021. Please check back in August for the official Varsity Schedule!
Our 2020 Season was not what anyone predicted it would be. We have fought hardships on-and-off the field, but we will be forever grateful to our Shark Family who came together to see us through. We are thankful for the leadership of Athletic Director Jessica Upchurch and all of the SRHS Administration and Staff for without their guidance this 2020 “socially-distant” season would have not been possible. We are thankful for Kelly Green, our communications director, whose posts and encouragement kept us working in the lengthy off-season, and for all of the parents who joined her to make sure we were well-fed and spiritually strong.
Every fall, Sebastian comes together at Shark Stadium under-the-lights, but those Friday nights are special because of the efforts of more than just the Gridiron on the field. Each year, our SRHS Marching Band & Color Guard, SRHS NJROTC, and our SRHS Varsity Cheer Team join us to make each Home game a community effort. This season we all faced what appeared to be insurmountable challenges, but each of these student organizations stepped up to support us.
We hope you will support each of them in the off season.
In what was not a normal year,
our SRHS Shark Marching Band & Color Guard stepped up and gave 120%
to support our Football Team’s effort on the field. Thank you to the Band Directors, Staff,
Parents, & Students
for being with us when we needed you most.
Don't miss the SRHS Shark Band's next concert. Visit their website for more info and dates.
From efficiently running our parking lot
and greeting our fans, to firing the cannon to sound a Shark touchdown, to proudly serving as Color Guard as we salute our nation each game, the SRHS NJROTC is the heart
of our Friday Night Lights.
We thank Commander Landis, MSgt Hussey, and all of the Cadet Staff for their unwavering service. Learn more about how you can support the SRHS SHARK COMPANY by visiting their website.
With their Shark Banner and Flags,
the SRHS Shark Varsity Cheer Team
helps us “take the field” in style,
and their indomitable energy
always boosts our team spirit
and pushes “our line” towards the “goal.”
