Acquiring these compression shirts will give these young men a sense of uniformity to play as a team. When you feel apart of a team, you play better which ultimately bring success to the program. As a Title I school, with past season's not being these boys best. I am wanting to bring the PRIDE back to this team in hopes of a victorious season. These boys have faced so much adversity over the past four years with different coaches coming and leaving. I have returned home to coach a team, I once had the pleasure of playing for. The thing I remembered in my experience was the football team feeling like a family. To be winners, we must look like winners to play like winners!
