White Bear Lake Football 2014 Commitment 2014 White Football “Show class, have pride, and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself.” -Bear Bryant
Mission Statement I will give full commitment to all my players on and off the field. My mission is to install in them that service to others and concern for others is what is most important in our program and in life.
BMFO: Building Men For Others Learn life lessons Form meaningful relationships Putting action into words Learn the importance of serving others Teach boys what it means to be a real man There is much more to life than football Each coach has word of the week Staff member of the week The staff member is captain and invited to to pre game meal Friday reading program
BMFO “ If you could speak to every boy in the world-let’s just pretend you could wipe out anything they’ve already seen or heard from their fathers or anybody else-how would you explain your own definition of what it means to be a man?” It’s about relationships and a cause,” Joe said. “Simple as that. What’s a man created to do? He’s created to be a son, a father, a husband, a brother, and so on. So I’m going to measure my masculinity- and it’s really about my humanity- based on how successful I am as a husband. If I blow it there, or if I blow it as a dad, nothing else really matters. All the power and prestige and possessions in the world will never make up for failed relationships. -From the book “Season of Life” which will be read to all players who come through the White Bear Lake football program.
