Rebuilding The Program Program 1-26 Emphasis moving forward – Program Numbers – Player Retention – Youth Program Awareness This program will return to its former dominance, this will not happen overnight, but weve already taken a step in the right direction Spartan-Family-Win
Spartan Coaching Staff Expects Total Commitment Help Build Players Character Issues with- Academics/Social/Substance, We are here to help, whenever possible Playing Time and Strategy is non-negotiable We are here to win- Best players, that earn trust, play
Spartan Philosophy Football is a privilege, not a guaranteed right. Academics, Commitment and Discipline inside and outside the classroom is an expectation. We will not throw away the whole to make exceptions for the few.
Social Media Facebook, Twitter, Blogs…etc. For many now it is a way of life, but anything written lives on forever… Any post that embarrasses the program or taunts an opponent= loss of 1 Quarter Any post where a player is depicted with Alcohol, Drugs, Weapons, Gang Affiliation, or of a Graphic Sexual nature=Removal from program
1 st Class Costs $ Equipment, Helmet alone costs $250 Quality Camp Gear Technology- DVD Burners, Cameras Team Meal Coaches- Summer Unpaid… Camp/TPC Funding Sources
Safety The Spartan coaching staff reserves the right to hand out equipment only when a young person has proven to the best of our knowledge and observations that they will be putting themselves in a competitive situation and not a dangerous situation. Freshman/Sophomore Levels have a non-cut approach, as long as rules are followed and commitment is shown. Varsity too welcomes all, but has less chances as under- classmen teams

College Recruiting Dispel Myth and Misinformation Recruiting is based upon – 1- Talent/Size/Speed/Strength – 2-Grades/ACT – 3-Character – 4-Exposure- Quality Programs draw interest.
Myths/Truths 1- High School Coaches give out college scholarships- NO. 2- I would have received a scholarship, but Coach doesnt like me- False 3- I can get my grades right- my Senior year- Its Too Late 4- My Stats are so good that my size doesnt matter- It does (Season Honors dont help...) 5- You must have the grades to be considered!
Size vs. Talent Size and Speed are often more important to college coaches than statistics- sometimes even talent. Division 1 Average sizes, there are exceptions but they are few Position Needed Size Needed Speed(laser) QB sec. RB sec. WR624.5 sec. O Line sec. D Tackle sec. D End sec.

NCAA FBS schools are allowed 85 total scholarships per year. There are 120 NCAA FBS schools Maximum of scholarships
Availability On the average, each NCAA FBS school will offer 25 scholarships per year That means there are 3000 scholarships offered each year to high school seniors and Junior College transfers There are 71 NJCAA football programs with approximately 60 players on each team. Thats over 4200 more athletes competing for scholarships In the U.S., there are approximately 300,000 Seniors in high school playing football each year.
