Philosophy of Football & Education

IT IS OUR CONTENTION THAT FOOTBALL SHOULD BE AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE SCHOOL CURRICULUM; IT IS AN EXTENSION OF THE SCHOOL DAY WHERE LIFE LONG SKILLS ARE PASSED ON THROUGH THE MEDIUM OF THIS GREAT GAME.
A COACH ABOVE ALL OTHER DUTIES IS A TEACHER. COACHES HAVE THE SAME OBLIGATION AS ALL TEACHERS, EXCEPT THAT WE MAY HAVE MORE MORAL AND LIFE-SHAPING INFLUENCE OVER OUR PLAYERS THAN ANYONE ELSE OUTSIDE OF THEIR FAMILIES. THE STUDENT-ATHLETES IN OUR PROGRAM ARE IN THE UNIQUE POSITION OF BEING PART OF A TEAM WHERE THEY MUST LEARN TO WORK AND FUNCTION EFFECTIVELY AND COHESIVELY WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF PEOPLE AND PERSONALITIES – AND THROUGH FOOTBALL THEY WILL DEVELOP AND NURTURE LASTING AND TREASURED FRIENDSHIPS. WE MUST DEMAND COMMITMENT TO PERSONAL EXCELLENCE IN EVERY ENDEAVOR IN LIFE THE STUDENT-ATHLETE CONSIDERS MEANINGFUL AND WORTHWHILE.ribet-football-mascot

IN FACING THE REALITIES OF COMPETITION, STUDENT-ATHLETES MUST ALSO LEARN THE MEANING OF EXCELLENCE AND PROFESSIONALISM. THEY MUST LEARN THAT DEDICATION, SACRIFICE AND HARD WORK ARE NECESSARY INGREDIENTS IN PERFORMING ANY TASKS THAT WILL LEAD TO THE ATTAINMENT OF A PRIZED GOAL OR LIFE OBJECTIVE. WE TAKE PLAYERS TO THEIR LIMITS AND SATURATE THEM WITH POSITIVE MOTIVATION AS WE WORK TO DEVELOP TOTAL DOMINANCE ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD. MOTIVATED PLAYERS ARE SUCCESSFUL PLAYERS.

THE STUDENT-ATHLETE WILL REPRESENT OUR SCHOOL IN A VERY VISIBLE ROLE AND WE WILL ENCOURAGE EACH PLAYER TO CONDUCT HIMSELF WITH CHARACTER, POISE, INTEGRITY, HONESTY AND PRIDE.ribet-football-helmet-2017

OUR STAFF PHILOSOPHY OF COACHING IS BUILT AROUND THE FOLLOWING OBJECTIVES:

1. Contribute to the overall development and maturity of the student-athlete
2. Develop, refine and teach ethical values
3. Encourage the student-athlete to achieve academic success
4. Encourage the student- athlete to be aware of the importance of attitude, self-discipline and commitment in education and in all areas of his life
5. Train the student-athlete for leadership
6. Teach the practice of excellence in competition
