After winning back-to-back league titles in 2016 and 2017, the Knights moved to the top tier of the PAL and faced an eventual state champion, a CCS Open finalist, and two other CCS Open challengers. In 2016, Menlo advanced to a CCS Championship to cap an 11-2 season. Menlo School football has a long-standing reputation for producing high-scoring offenses and tough-minded opportunistic defenses.

About the Coach

Josh BowieA longtime high school coach on the Peninsula, Bowie was a varsity assistant at Woodside High for the past three seasons and varsity head coach from 2012-2013 before coming to Menlo. As an assistant, he served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Bowie also served as varsity assistant at Sacred Heart Prep and Castro Valley and Capuchino, where his prep coaching career began as frosh-soph assistant. Since 2007, Bowie has been the department chair of the physical education department at Crocker Middle School. 

“My job, as a coach, is to help each student-athlete navigate through what is often a difficult time in life, to help them develop into quality adults that can look back on the Menlo football experience, and see it as not only a time of great camaraderie, but also of tremendous growth.​”
