Dedicated to teaching youth through positive role models.

Emphasis on learning, playing, and enjoying the sport while instilling high moral standards by stressing the importance of academic achievement and community involvement.

Helping kids become leaders and teammates.

Fostering confidence and a sense of self-worth, in players that extend beyond the gridiron and into the school, family and community.

To prepare youngsters to face the future with sportsmanship, teamwork, honesty, responsibility, self-discipline, positive aspirations, academic preparedness and confidence. If we teach them positive lessons, such as playing by the rules, our young athletes will learn to live by the rules.
