Common goals unite football team


This year, the varsity football team has many goals as a team and many tough opponents to play against.
“[A goal is] team 3.0 GPA and to make the playoffs,” said head varsity coach Sam Baker.
Along with team goals, there are also personal goals within each individual of the team.
“As an individual, a personal goal is to focus more on the little things and to become a more coachable player,” said junior Nathan Staley.
Over the summer, the players worked in the weight room for off-season to better themselves for this fall season.
“I came to the school during the summer for off-season because I wanted to become a better player for the current season. Not only does it help me become a better player but also a better person and teammate,” said junior Joshua West.
The players also have a really well rounded connection on and off the field that coaches and other staff members have noticed. This connection is one of the factors as to how the football team plans to improve their play on the field.
“The players have a great bond and they are working on forming a brotherhood and spend a lot of time together,” Baker said.
Playing football is also something that the individuals choose to continue due to the environment of being with friends and the competition.
“I decided to play because I love the atmosphere it brings, and it’s also fun to go out and play with friends,” Staley said.
The team currently has a record of 1-4 and they are very excited to see what the rest of this season will bring to themselves as a team and individually, and what goals they will achieve.
