    4. Program Goals • Academics – This is always first in our program. It is the reason we are here, to educate young minds • Excellence – This is different to every team. It is doing the best we can possibly do with each team. Always making constant improvement in our program. You are either getting better or getting worse, there is no in between. There is no substitute for hard work in this regard. • Team First – To be the best we can, our players and coaches must have an attitude whereby they care more about the team than they do about their own individual success. This is the key to success in any walk of life. • Fun – We are here to work, but athletics were invented to be fun. We can never lose sight of this as coaches. We must find creative ways to have fun while we work hard. Athletic Program

    20. Football Philosophy • Those Who Commit Will Be Champions • Coaching Philosophy Home

    21. 41. This is our theme for the year. The idea that we should all go one step further than anyone else to make the team the best we can be Be committed to excellence. Work hard at closing the potential-performance gap in each area in yourself and your teammates. Be committed to becoming a champion in all avenues of your life. The game is you vs. you. How good can you be as a team and as an individual? No matter who the opponent is or what the situation is, how good can you be? Set clear goals and strive to reach them. Always reevaluate and stretch your limits. Remember that we never move past our own self-imposed boundaries. (Circus Elephant) Enjoy the preparation for the competitive event, pay and enjoy the price of practices and team get-togethers. The journey is greater than the Inn – Love the Process. It isn’t the physical advantage (size, strength, and speed) that makes the plays – it’s your focus and fundamentals that gives you the edge. Build a strong fundamental skill and system base. It isn’t always the Porsche that wins the race, often it is the Ford. Love the Competition. Love to play the game for the pleasure of playing the game. You may be in a support role rather than on the field. Enjoy your particular role on this team and the competition you have daily. Make each day your masterpiece. You only have one day to accomplish what you have set out to do, make it count. Create in yourself strong character. Immerse yourself in it. Know that adversity is a part of life. Keep your head up and respond positively. The greatest freedom that man possesses is to choose his attitude in any situation. How you react is the reason you crash. What you put into your body is what you’re going to get out of it. What you put into your mind is what you will get out of it. Input = Output. Learn to play in the now! It’s this play, this down, this specific situation that is happening. Realize that your mind has a tendency to wander. Keep strong focus on the now. The tougher the challenge the more you should enjoy it. When you believe and feel this way the classic one liner happens. When the going gets tough, you get going. Bring it on! Know that teams and individuals succeed by taking calculated risks along the way. Be alert and poised for any opportunity and then act quickly to take advantage of any situation. There are times you can make things happen that can keep or change the momentum of the game. Keep big moon our side. Those who commit will be champions Football Philosophy

    22. Motivate Care about our players. Constant Improvement Expect to succeed Teach our players Consistency Coach every down of every practice Coaching Philosophy Football Philosophy
