It is with great pleasure that I present to you the 2017 Mustang football team.
We are very excited for the upcoming season. High school sports are truly special and we are very fortunate to get to be a part of such an amazing community. Our young men have worked extremely hard both on and off the field to prepare for the 2017 season. I am proud of the young men in this program as they strive to live by our Mustang Values and Standards. As a program, we challenge one another to Empty the Tank in all areas of our lives.
As a coaching staff we know that our platform to influence is large. We love the game of football and are passionate about developing our young men into great football players but that is not our purpose as coaches. Our mission is to develop men of character and integrity who will lead lives of loving and serving others.
We recognize there are three areas of false masculinity in our society; athletic ability, sexual conquest, and economic success. As a staff we have created our Mustang Men program where our young men will learn about the true measure of manhood. These areas include loving and serving others, accepting responsibility, leading courageously, and living for a cause greater than ourselves.
Every young man who chooses to be a part of our program will know they are loved and valued. We strive to be transformational coaches who will help equip our young men with the values and character to lead lives of substance and love. Our senior leadership team developed values and standards that we will strive to live by. Our 2017 Senior Leadership Team picked the following values: Class, Loyalty, Unity, Hard Work, Trust, Selflessness, Diligence, Competitiveness, Pride, Confidence, and Passion.
I would like to extend my gratitude to everyone within our community that helps contribute to our program. Our Mustang Football program is special because of all the people that work tirelessly behind the scenes. Parents, teachers, administration, grandparents, alumni, community leaders, and many others play a pivotal role in molding our young men. I could never thank you enough for your support.
It’s Great To Be A MUSTANG!
