Fenwick Football is a Chicagoland football powerhouse that has produced many great players and teams in its history. Among those are 1953 Heisman Trophy Winner Johnny Lattner.

Prior to the institution of a state playoff system for football in the 1970s, Fenwick competed to play in the Prep Bowl, which pitted the champions of the Chicago Catholic League against the champion of the Chicago Public League. Fenwick won four Prep Bowl titles at the game's usual home of Soldier Field. The first was in 1945 where a crowd of 80,000 fans saw Fenwick defeat Tilden High School, 20–6. This game is currently tied as the 7th most attended high school football game. The second win was in 1962 when Fenwick defeated Schurz High School 40–0. The win not only capped an undefeated season but was played before over 91,000 fans—the third largest crowd to witness a high school football game in Illinois history.
