Our Formula for Success

List of 4 items.

  • People

    To be most successful on the football field, it is about showing up every day and giving your best for the person next to you because you cared about them so much. When that happens, the scoreboard takes care of itself. Also, the better person we become as a result.
    Businesses don’t get better. People do. Elite organizations don’t take their people for granted. They intentionally focus on them. They develop their people. They listen to their people. They love their people. Ultimately, the best organizations/teams know it’s the people who drive results. It’s about US. WE is greater than ME.
  • Culture

    Culture is defined as ‘How we do things.’ 
    Great teams don’t become great just because of what they do. They become great because of how they do things.
    When we talk about ‘results,’ it’s beyond just wins and losses. It’s everything. Player engagement. School community impact. Becoming a better person. Player morale. All of this reflects our culture.
    The direction of our culture may be set by us coaches, but it comes alive through the beliefs and the behaviors of our players.
    Our players all own the culture of this program.
  • Preparation

    If you don’t roll up your sleeves and do the work in the dark—when your opportunity comes, you won’t be ready to take advantage. Your work ethic must exceed your expectations.

    - Weight room = preparation 
    - Playing other sports = preparation
  • Execution

    Everyone within a culture has a role they are responsible for executing.
    Because of our people/culture/and preparation it allows us to execute as best as we can on the field
    What does this then look like? We have less penalties. We have less turnovers. We line up correctly. We execute our assignments better. We pursue. We tackle well. We force more turnovers. We control field position on special teams better.
