Football - Varsity
(click on picture for larger version)
As the 2016 football seasons unfold, I am reminded of the great coaches, players, and teams who have established a standard of excellence that all St. Xavier football teams strive to uphold. The names and faces change every year, but the mission remains and the focus to "get better every day" still holds precedent in these young men's lives. Every game ends with a final score, but we never discuss winning. For these young men, it is the challenge to compete at the highest level, to better themselves every day, and to find a way to improve the team. As our mission statement says, "our goal is to produce championship caliber young men who understand that winning has more to do with taking care of what's important now, more than it has to do with who scored more points at the end of the 4th quarter." With this in mind...bring on the 2016 season!!!
