CHARACTER over talent:
Every program and coach desires to have the most talented players. We make no apologies for that desire as well, but our primary focus will be on a players character over their talent. We believe that “a good name is more valuable than gold”. Our players will be taught the value of integrity on and off the field. A person’s “name” is the most valuable thing they possess and that they will leave behind when their time on earth is complete. We say, “if you cheat & cut corners at practice you will cheat & cut corners in other areas of your life”. In the words of Pat Summit, “discipline yourselves so others don’t have to”. Our desire for players in the FPYF program is that we leave them better off than when they started, in football AND life skills! We believe in treating every player like a king, NOT a commodity!
"The great hope of society is the individual character. If you would create something, you must be something.” - Vince Lombardi
