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 an honorary captain
BMFO If you could speak to every boy in the world-lets just pretend you could wipe out anything theyve 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? Its about relationships and a cause, Joe said. Simple as that. Whats a man created to do? Hes created to be a son, a father, a husband, a brother, and so on. So Im going to measure my masculinity- and its 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
