Team Expectations: Be a good teammate and high character student athlete. No player will bully. We will stop the bullying, we will help protect those that are unable, we will be kind, we will be compassionate. Behavior in school will be rewarded for good behavior and disciplined for bad behavior. This is not an unreasonable expectation. We will have study halls every Thursday during the season (Varsity and JV).


Injuries: Football is a violent game and Injuries are a part of the game. We invest in the highest certified equipment and teach the most up to date techniques. We have an excellent trainer in Joella Matheny. Her and the training staff will get your student  back in the game as quick and safe as possible..
