Football at Sterling comes off the 2009 season with a fourth-place finish in the conference and a 6–4 record.[2] Chuck Lambert is the program's current head coach, succeeding his brother Andy, the new coach at Southern Nazarene, Okla.[3] Notable former athletes include actor Clarence Gilyard.[4]

During the 1905 season, the Coleman Company set up temporary gas-powered lighting for a night game against Fairmount College (now called Wichita State University). It was the first night football game played west of the Mississippi River.[5] Fairmount won the game 24–0.[6]

In 2013, the Warriors went 8–1 in Conference play, winning their first ever Kansas Conference football title and qualifying for the NAIA football playoffs, also for the first time. Andy Lambert was the head coach of this team.
