The 4 wheels of the Football Program
Our program will be based on more than wins and losses. I have learned that players will care more when they know you sincerely care about them. In my first few years of coaching I was concerned with only one aspect of coaching: athletics. After not having much success I knew that I needed to change my philosophy. I knew we need to have more focus than football and we must have some balance to all we teach. I came up with the idea that we would get all of our players to buy into the 4 wheels of the program:
As a student athlete we expect you to excel on and off the field. You are expected to sit on the first two rows of your classroom and prepare for your class as if you were preparing for a championship game. As an athlete you are a role model and we will demand performance in the classroom. Your academic success will carry you later in life.
A perfect athletic wheel will consist of year round training. Our training will consist of practice, speed and strength workouts, Breakfast of Champions training, and team building exercises.
I believe that we are called to assist our players grow in all areas of life. We will help our players understand their purpose in life. As a coach I hold myself accountable for my players and I hope to do everything I can to help them grow in their faith.
You are called to be a servant for other people. As a team you are expected to give back to the community by participating in the many projects that WE support. We expect you to plant trees that you have no intention to sit under.
