We started our 2015 campaign the Monday after our 2014 season ended last November. We met with each of the Upper Classmen and discussed personal and team goals – in the classroom, the weight room, and on the field. We as coaches have evaluated our program, critiqued our performance, and created a plan to better build a championship program in terms of Character Development, Relationship Building, and Results Achievement. Ultimately, it's our players' attitudes, efforts, and performances that will determine if we achieve our goals in 2015. Players and Parents... we need your buy in.
Players: It's been said that players are made in the off-season (Bigger, Stronger, Faster,) and Teams are made in-season. To be the best team we can be in the fall, you need to develop into the best player you can be over the next two months. We are the sum of our parts... and each part is crucial. Make a commitment to the summer and you are making a commitment to our fall. Show up and work hard.
Parents: Please commit to encouraging your son to attend and engage in the rigor of Spring Football and Summer Strength and Conditioning. Football is not a contact sport – it is a collision sport. Your son's body needs to be ready for the pure physicality of the game. Our summer program will assist in injury prevention and will make your son the most explosive football player he can be. Furthermore, we strongly believe that weight room participation is a crucial element in developing character, relationships, and results. We greatly appreciate your support.
With Great Excitement and Enthusiasm,
Coach Templeton and the entire Lion FB Staff
