    Football Lettering Criteria


    Varsity lettering criteria is a point system based around the programs philosophy:

    Our Goal is to WIN but our Focus is on the HOW.


    We believe:

    Winning is doing something better than we have ever done it before.


    • We focus on the HOW by understanding and controlling our Mindset on and off the field. Mindset is geared around; team first, one play at a time, positive self-talk, you vs. yesterday and own the solution. Our mindset is the foundation of the program.
    • Brotherhood is the middle of our philosophy.

    Brotherhood is based around accountability, trust, faith, respect, and encouragement. When we play for each other we will WIN.



    • On and off-field Performance is the top layer because the right mindset and a brotherhood will lead us to increased performance. Aspects of performance are relentless effort, technique, and knowledge.



    With a common mindset and belief in self and one another, we will WIN!
