Trust is accomplished by having a positive and successful athletic environment based on accountability. When an athlete knows that his coaches truly care for him, the trust creates a wonderful cycle of continued success. We as coaches need to show genuine concern for those students who have given their time and efforts to the program. Genuine trust will help players do anything within their power to pay back what they have received.
Passion is developed through hard work and sacrifice. Striving to educate our athletes that what they do now will be part of who they become, is a tremendous responsibility for all coaches. If student-athletes set high goals and expectations, working hard to achieve them, they will leave a lasting legacy for those behind them to follow. This growth process will prepare them for their futures and will become a model for all that follow to emulate. The players that follow will naturally look up to them and strive to achieve beyond their predecessors.
Clear and consistent discipline goes a long way in establishing a good relationship between a player and a coach, as well as creating a successful program. Football gives the student-athlete a structured framework in which to develop life skills that will assist them throughout their whole lives. Teamwork, sacrifice, work ethic, courage to face their fears, and a chance to be a part of something greater than themselves. The game itself challenges the players to develop the necessary skills in order to perform. It is our job, as coaches, to provide a positive example of what it takes to perform at a high level of success on and off the field. Players will be responsible for their actions both on and off the field in order to be successful in life. Our core values underline our vision of the Football program.
We play for those that came before us, we set the standard for those that follow.
