Educator. Mentor. Number one fan.

High school football coaches teach. They encourage. They inspire. That’s because high school football coaches are educators first.

Their number one priority is building the character of their players by serving as a mentor and a role model. They have a player’s best interest in mind before they ever step foot on the field.

It’s a relationship built on the foundation of a teenager knowing that someone believes in them, is cheering them on and will always have their back. When a coach empowers a player, it’s one of the most life-affirming validations a teen can ever receive.

Above all else, coaches instill values in their players that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.

Talk to the teens in your family about joining their school’s football team! This is a mentor for life. This is high school football.

What will boost your teen’s confidence? Offer mentors who believe in them? Make them feel like they belong? High school football!

There’s nothing better than playing under the Friday night lights. That’s why high school football players spend months preparing for a handful of games: Running drills. Lifting weights. Practicing plays. And staying focused through it all.

Attention to detail is key to every part of playing high school football, from running routes and tackling techniques to watching game film and learning plays.
