Football History

Camden High School first fielded football teams in 1894 and since then has gone on to capture seven South Carolina state championships and over 600 victories. Originally known as the “Athenians” and the “Spartans,” Camden High School’s commitment to excellence extends to the football field each Friday night where Bulldog fans gather to cheer on their team.
