Football is very important to Carmel, since it encourages friendly participation, activity, and success.
Carmel is the proud home to the Carmel High School Football team, a team that truly focuses on companionship, friendly competition, and the drive to win.
Besides their high school, Carmel has a team called the Panther House, which is built up of youth members, but with a similar focus as any other football team. The Panthers promote self-esteem, positive teamwork, and great sportsmanship skills.
As far as professional football goes, the Oakland Raiders play just two hours away from Carmel. Support the home team by taking a bit of a road trip and cheering the Raiders on.
