My Students

Our student-athletes are a hard-working group both inside the classroom and in the field of play. These student-athletes hold themselves to higher standards and promote a team based on unity. Our school is a small community, and all of our students receive free lunch.

"Football can generate excitement and bring people together"~Didier Drogba.

As a smaller school, we are working our tails off to even the playing field against schools whose student body is almost double.

All of the students at our school receive free lunch. There is an amazing group of hardworking young adults in our school. They strive every day to do their best and succeed. Their goals and dreams are to achieve a high school diploma. Many will move down the path toward college, others plan on serving their country, and some will go straight into the workforce. Regardless of the path each student chooses, they strive to do their best and to take it as far as they can. These students take any obstacle in their path head-on and don't let it slow them down. They have overcome so many different setbacks during their short time in high school.

My Project

As one of the smallest Division 1A schools in the State, our dedication to the sport of football and our practice ethic will be what carries us to victory as we compete against schools that have larger student bodies to choose from.

Football is football and talent is talent, but the mindset of your team makes all the difference~ Robert Griffin III.

In order to be competitive and to prepare our athletes for and during this season, we need new hand warmers for those cold night games. These items will also help with the training of our high school football team.
