Academic Development

IMPORTANCE OF ACADEMICS

Players are student-athletes, not athlete-students. Their education is the most important thing that they can obtain in their lives. An academic support program will be developed, run, and maintained where students can receive help in any academic classes in which they may be struggling. Many times, poor grades are a result of tardiness and/or absences. A strict attendance policy will be enforced on the football team. Missing class will be counted as missing a practice with appropriate discipline for each transgression. Developing good academic skills is a priority in the program.

ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS

At the college level, grades are mostly determined by attendance, following directions, and hard work. If a student fails a class, it is because they failed at least one of these three things. If a student attends each day, follows the directions given by the teacher, and works hard to complete all assignments, a minimum of a C grade will be obtained. With that in mind, The football program will have a few requirements above and beyond the normal academic requirements of other programs.

LEARN TO LOVE THE PROCESS OF WINNING

Too often, coaches and players will settle for the end result of a play rather than how the result was accomplished. The process of winning is to love the grind. Developing a mentality and focus within the program so that the players will consciously strive to work hard and focus on the details on each and every play is the process of winning. Winning teams love the day-to-day work required to win games on Friday nights, while losing teams do not love the day-to-day work required to win games. Teaching the players to love the process, rather than the results will help them be successful in not just football, but in everything else they do for the rest of their lives. Focusing on the details in school will improve their grades, focusing on the details in their relationships will improve their personal growth, and focusing on the details at their jobs will ensure job security and help them be successful in their life.
