BUILDING THE CARDINAL FOOTBALL PROGRAM
In his book, Coaching Football Successfully,
Bob Reade claims that to be successful in
athletics at the high school level you either
must outnumber your opponents or outprogram
them (Reade, 1994). No control over enrollment,
forces programs to look within the program itself
and discover the essential elements that are
needed to build a successful program. Successful
high school football programs require planning,
organization, leadership, control and
responsibility for success will depend on the
athletic director, coaches, administration,
athletes, parents, and community.
10
PROGRAM DEVELOPMENTTHE TRUTHS OF
CARDINAL FOOTBALL
  • 1. The team over the individual
  • When you choose to become part of a team, you
    cease to exist as an individual John Wooden
  •  
  • 2. The long term over the short term (decisions,
    legacy)
  • Every moment is an opportunity for life
    education
  • Desire is that Players become great Husbands /
    Fathers/ employees/ etc.
  •  
  • 3. Inside over the outside (Attitude)
  • Looking for changed hearts, not blind
    obedience
  • Happy players play better
  • Win your players hearts, and they will follow
    you wherever
  • you lead them
  •  
  • 4. Everyone is important (Emphasize people not
    productivity)
  • Emphasizing productivity often squashes people
    and always limits performance
  • Emphasizing people builds people up and
    consequently enhances performance
  •  
  • 5. Love is the Cornerstone
  • Love each other

11
PROGRAM DEVELOPMENTTHE TRUTHS OFCARDINAL
FOOTBALL
  • 7. Humility is the mark of greatness
  • Be teachable
  • Anyone who thinks he is something when he is
    nothing is deceived
  • 8. Servant Leadership
  • We come to serve, not to be served
  • Prioritize developing servant warriors
  • Leaders lead the way by going first, and going
    further (maximal sacrifice)
  • 9. Pursuing Winning as a goal, though not
    sinful, is a dangerous motivation
  • Winning, by its nature, tends to glorify self
    and not us
  • Winning, by its intoxication, produces a
    climate of the ends justifying the means
    whereby coaches often compromise their
    commitment to prioritize family and player
    relationships
  • 10. Pursuing Winning as a goal inhibits
    performance
  • The pursuit of winning produces anxiety,
    tension, and fear of failure that hinders
  • relaxation and thus diminishes maximal
    performance
  • Winning as a motivation hampers performance
    when winning a game or a
  • winning season is no longer a probability or
    possible

12
PROGRAM DEVELOPMENTTHE TRUTHS OFCARDINAL
FOOTBALL
  • 12. The power of the put-up game
  • Put-ups keep us mentally positive and hopeful
  • Put-ups free us from the negative power of
    momentum shifts (makes us circumstance and
    momentum shift proof)
  • 13. The opponent is our friend
  • The double win encourages opponents and brings
    out the best in both of us
  • 14. We compete against ourselves
  • Comparing ourselves to others inhibits
    performance
  • Pursue closing the potential/performance gap
  • People come to beat us. We come to be us
  • 15. We only ask for one simple thing. . . .Every
    last drop of your blood
  • Maximal effort in all things, at all times
  • 16. Total submission to coaching authority
  • Players obey coaches with immediacy / with
    great effort / with smiles on their faces

13
PROGRAM DEVELOPMENTTHE TRUTHS OF CARDINAL
FOOTBALL
  • 17. Talk in terms of responsibilities not
    rights
  • When you become part of a team, you give up
    rights and gain responsibilities
  • 18. Start fast. Finish strong
  • Its not how you start, but how you finish that
    matters
  • 19. Building Men For Others
  • False Masculinity Three components athletic
    ability, sexual conquest, economic success
  • Relationships Success will ultimately be
    based on What kind of husband, father, son,
    teammate, brother, or friend were you?
  • Working For a Transcendent Cause Look past
    our own desires
  • Accepting Responsibility Having Integrity Is
    Hard. You can go one way or the other.
  • Leading Courageously Leadership must be based
    on some kind of moral, ethical foundation. It
    takes courage to lead in the right direction.
  • Enacting Justice on Behalf of Others Be
    other-centered. Act on what is right and
    wrong.
  • Empathy Always try to understand the pain and
    suffering of others.

PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT4 KEYS WE WANTTO DEVELOP IN
PLAYERS
  1. Create "vision" in players toward the expansion
    of character building
  2. Develop Discipleship/Life Values paradigms for
    players within FB context
  3. Teach players how to become better
    students/sons/friends/workers
  4. Educate players in the "how to" of being solid
    citizens, on and off the field

15
PROGRAM DEVELOPMENTFOOTBALL PROSPECT CRITERIA
FOR PLAYERS
  1. We want great kids (people), who wish for the
    kind of FB climate that we would provide
  2. We are much less concerned with their athletic
    ability or potential College Football playing
    proficiency than we are with their character
  3. We are simply looking for great people who have
    interest in school/community, education, and who
    want "more than Football

16
"WHAT MATTERS", AND"WHAT LASTS"?
  • If you want to be remembered with honor......for
    years and years you'd be wise to care more
    about the TEAM's best than about your own
    interests We call that, "Servant Warrior-hood If
    you are NOT known by your teammates and coaches
    to be a Servant Warrior, you may possibly leave
    here with trophies and rings and plaques and
    memories, but you will not leave an enduring
    legacy.... neither will you be honored with
    reverence by future generations
  • Please understand that the power of a team is a
    long list of individual personalities and
    characters coming together to give up their
    rights, and lay down their personal glory, for a
    common goal that is bigger than themselves Please
    understand that a team very much needs individual
    personalities. However, the enemy of a
    "TEAM"........ is individualism?
  • Please understand that if you start and play and
    star in your career at Pleasant Plains High
    School, and yet if don't have the respect of your
    teammates, consider that you have really achieved
    very little that matters or lasts Please
    understand that, more than talent, more than
    great players, more than anything else, TEAM
    CHEMISTRY is the GLUE that brings out the best in
    a team Guard it with your life Please understand
    that for teams to have great chemistry, they must
    do more than simply "respect" each other. They
    must truly care about each other "together", more
    than they care about themselves individually
    Please understand as completely as possible that
    "we really do need each other"......every last
    one of us

17
"WHAT MATTERS", AND"WHAT LASTS"?
  • Please understand that Football, though it is a
    very physical game, is much, much more mental,
    emotional and social. And that is why you must
    guard your mind and your heart so aggressively
  • Please understand that the mind and heart shut
    down long before the body does Please understand
    that if you DO NOT cherish and nurture and
    seriously guard the preciousness of
    "relationships" within your team.......between
    "players and players" and "players and
    coaches".....that you nor your team will reach
    their fullest potential, and you may additionally
    forfeit opportunities that you have worked so
    hard to achieve.Please understand that
    when relationships are compromised, that the mind
    and heart shut down significantly, and
    supernatural forces are eliminated that come from
    being truly "together"? Please understand that
    when teams emphasize their similarities and
    de-emphasize their differences, that power
    manifests because players share the same goals
    and "care" about the same things. For where there
    is caring and sharing, there is power
  • Please understand that Football doesn't matter at
    all, and yet it matters very, very much

18
SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT "FAMILY"
  • Most of you will be parents some day
  • Have you ever thought about what it would be like
    if your children disrespected you in public, or
    spoke poorly of you in private?
  • Have you ever thought about the fact that how you
    treat your coaches, is how your children will
    treat you?
  • Please trust me on that. You will reap what you
    sow That is a Life Truth, like the fact of
    Gravity. It can not be circumvented
  • Most of you will be employers someday, or will
    have people under your supervision Have you ever
    thought about what it would be like if your
    employees did not do what you asked, or did it
    grudgingly, or did it poorly, or complained about
    your "fairness"?
  • Have you ever thought about the fact that how you
    treat your teachers and your roommates........ is
    how your employees will treat you? You'd be wise
    to think about that

19
SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT
  • Do the right thing
  • Give it your best shot
  • And remember that what you have done or not done
    to others, will happen to You
  • And THEN you will know what it feels like And if
    you fail THAT test, THEN you will wish that you
    had been more diligent in learning your lessons
    well.......BEFORE you graduated from school

20
BE UNCOMMON
  • SUCCESS IS UNCOMMON, THEREFORE NOT TO BE
    ENJOYED BY THE COMMON MAN. WE ARE LOOKING FOR
    UNCOMMON PEOPLE.
  • CHARACTER
  • WHAT YOU DO IS NOT AS IMPORTANT AS HOW YOU DO IT.
  • CAN YOU BE COUNTED ON TO DO THINGS THE RIGHT WAY?
  • CHARACTER IS TESTED, REVEALED, AND FURTHER
    DEVELOPED BY THE DECISIONS WE MAKE IN THE MOST
    CHALLENGING TIMES.
  • IF WE HAVENT ALLOWED OUR PLAYERS TO BE
    ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEMSELVES, THEN WE HAVE DONE
    THEM A DISSERVICE.
  • CHARACTER DOES NOT COME FROM RULES BUT THE SMALL
    ACTIONS OF RESPONSIBILITY THAT OCCUR DAY AFTER
    DAY.

21
BE UNCOMMON
  • HONESTY IS THE FIRST CHAPTER IN THE BOOK OF
    WISDOM
  • - THOMAS JEFFERSON
  • HONESTY AND INTEGRITY
  • INTEGRITY IS WHAT YOU DO WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING
    IT IS DOING THE RIGHT THING ALL THE TIME, EVEN
    WHEN IT MAY WORK TO YOUR DISADVANTE.
  • CAN I COUNT ON YOU TO BE MY TEAMMATE, PERFORM
    YOUR ASSIGNMENT, AND DO YOUR WORK IN THE
    OFF-SEASON?
  • CAN I COUNT ON YOU TO DO WHAT YOU SAY YOU WILL
    DO, NO MATTER WHAT MAY COME ALONG TO MAKE IT
    DIFFICULT?
  • YOU AND YOU ALONE DETERMINE WHETHER YOU WILL BE A
    PERSON OF INTEGRITY.

22
BE UNCOMMON
  • LET SOMEONE ELSE PRAISE YOU, NOT YOUR OWN MOUTH
    A STRANGER, NOT YOUR OWN LIPS
  • - PROVERBS 272
  • HUMILITY AND SERVANT-HOOD
  • PRIDE IS ALL ABOUT ME, BUT CONFIDENCE IS A
    REALIZATION THAT I HAVE BEEN GIVEN ABILITIES TO
    FILL A UNIQUE ROLE THAT NO ONE ELSE IS CALLED TO
    FILL.
  • LIFE IS NOT ABOUT US, BUT ABOUT OTHERS AND
    SOMETHING GREATER THAN US.
  • BLOWING YOU OWN HORN ENDS UP BACKFIRING AND
    CHIPPING AWAY AT ANY RESPECT YOU MIGHT THINK YOU
    DESERVE.
  • IMPORTANT BUT NOT INDISPENSABLE.
  • DO I INVEST IN THE LIVES OF MY TEAMMATES?

23
BE UNCOMMON
  • TWENTY YEARS FROM NOW YOU WILL BE MORE
    DISAPPOINTED BY THE THINGS YOU DIDNT DO THAN BY
    THE ONES YOU DID
  • -MARK TWAIN
  • COURAGE
  • STAND FOR WHAT I KNOW IS RIGHT
  • SUMMON THE COURAGE TO BE UNCOMMON.
  • SOME OF THE MOST REWARDING TIMES IN LIFE ARE WHEN
    YOU HAVE TO STAND ALONE.

24
IN DEFENSE OF ATHLETIC S
  • There is a huge volume of scientific evidence
    that provides a relatively consistent association
    between participation in high school athletics
    and many positive educational outcomes. Research
    has noted that athletic participation has a
    significant positive correlation with

1. Academic achievement 2. Good school
attendance 3.Good self-concept 4.Sociability
5.High self-expectations 6.Formation of
educational goals 7.Prospects for college
attendance 8.A high rate of retention (staying
in school) 9.Good conduct 10.Optimum physical
fitness
11.Self-confidence 12.Leadership skills
13.Better habits of eating, sleeping and
exercise. 14.Calmness and poise under pressure
15.The ability to work with others towards a
common goal. 16.The ability to sacrifice for
the common good. 17.Pride and graciousness in
achievement. 18.The ability to overcome

    want it to

    is to DO IT

    right, and
  • lets get on with it
  • (Frank Beamer, Virginia Tech)
  • Reminders (Coaches may deal w/ these after
    practice) Minor Offenses (late, missing
    equipment, foul language, disrespect, etc) If

48
PARENT/COACHCOMMUNICATION PLAN
  • Both parenting and coaching are extremely
    difficult vocations. By establishing an
    understanding of each position, we are better
    able to accept the actions of the other and
    provide greater benefits to children. As
    parents, when your children become involved in
    our programs, you have a right to understand what
    expectations are placed on your child. This
    begins with clear communication from the coach of
    your childs program.
  • Communication that you should expect from your
    childs coach
  • Expectations the coach has for your child as well
    as all the players on the squad
  • Locations and times of all practices and contest
  • Team requirements, i.e., practices, special
    equipment, out-of-season conditioning, etc
  • Discipline that may result in the denial of your
    childs participation
  • Communication coaches expect from parents
  • Concerns expressed directly to the coach
  • Notification of any schedule conflicts well in
    advance

49
PARENT/COACHCOMMUNICATION PLAN
  • As your child becomes involved in the programs
    at Pleasant Plains, they will experience some of
    the most rewarding moments of their lives. It is
    important to understand that there also may be
    times when things do not go the way you or your
    child wishes. At these times, discussion with
    the coach is encouraged.
  • Appropriate concerns to discuss with coaches
  • The treatment of your child
  • Ways to help your child improve
  • Concerns about your childs behavior
  • It is very difficult to accept your childs not
    playing as much as you may hope. Coaches are
    professionals. They make judgment decisions
    based on what they believe to be the best for all
    students involved. As you have seen from the
    list above, certain things can be and should be
    discussed with your childs coach. Other things,
    such as those following, must be left to the
    discretion of the coach.
  • Issues not appropriate to discuss with coaches
  • Playing time
  • Team Strategy
  • Other student-athletes

50
PARENT/COACHCOMMUNICATION PLAN
  • There are situations that may require a
    conference between the coach and the parent.
    These are to be encouraged. It is important that
    both parties involved have clear understanding of
    the others position. When these conferences are
    necessary, the following procedures should be
    followed to help promote a resolution to the
    issue or concern.
  • If there is a concern to discuss with a coach,
    the procedure should follow
  • Please encourage your child to speak directly
    with the coach, many times this can take care of
    the problem
  • Call to set up an appointment
  • If the coach cannot be reached, call the Athletic
    Director at (512)464-4031
  • Please do not attempt to confront a coach before
    or after a contest or practice. These can be
    emotional times for both the parent and the
    coach. Meetings of this nature do not promote
    resolution
  • If the meeting with the coach did not provide a
    satisfactory resolution, call and set up an
    appointment with the Athletic Director to discuss
    the situation

51
TO THE PARENTS OF OUR CARDINAL PLAYERS
  • Dear Parents,
  • Parents are a big part of our team. We all need
    your support both on and off the field. You can
    either help our team or hinder it. Please
    encourage your son to give his best effort both
    on and off the field. Our coaches will be doing
    the same, but we need your help and support also.
    As coaches, we are sure there will be times when
    you may not agree with our decisions. However,
    we will be making decisions for the team, not for
    individuals. Football is a team sport, and we
    will need your help and understanding in
    decision-making situations. Often, we may
    struggle to find the key to success, but the key
    to failure is trying to please everyone.
  • Please read through The Cardinal Way football
    rules, expectations, and philosophy so you
    understand what will be going on. I look forward
    to your support of our program. If you need to
    talk to me, please call me at school (555-5555)
    during my prep period (000 000), or before
    school (000 000). PLEASE do not call me at
    home or talk to me after a game about your sons
    playing time or any other matter pertaining to
    our coaching decisions.
  • Yours In Football,
  • Brad Pugh
  • Head Football Coach

52
THE CARDINAL SERVANT-WARRIOR AWARD
  • In past seasons we have recognized team and
    individual effort on the football field by
    handing out various helmet decals. Our program
    wishes to introduce an award. The Cardinal
    Servant-Warrior Award, that shall recognize team
    and individual effort off the field.
  • In an attempt to foster our programs belief in
    developing caring, responsible, and respectful
    young men this award goes to those players that
    have practiced some random act of kindness
    towards their fellow man. If you witness any of
    our players doing such an act, please contact me
    by phone at 555-5555 or at Pleasant Plains High
    School.
  • Players must be nominated and all nominations
    must go to one of our football coaches. We hope
    that you will have the opportunity to witness
    such an act and that you will take the time to
    nominate our players.
  • The Cardinal Football Staff

53
Faculty and Staff Appreciation Night
  • Dear Pleasant Plains Faculty and Staff
  • The Riverton football game this Friday night,
    September 00th, has been designated as Pleasant
    Plains School District Staff Appreciation Night.
  • As a member of the 2012 Cardinal Football
    Program, I would like you to represent me as an
    honored staff member at the game. Please wear my
    away jersey to school on Friday, and to the game
    that evening so that people will know that you
    are representing me. You will be asked to stand
    and be recognized with the other representatives
    during half-time of the Varsity game.
  • Often times we become so busy and get caught up
    with everything else that kind words and deeds
    seem to go unnoticed. On behalf of myself and
    the entire 2012 Cardinal Football Team, I would
    like to thank you for your help, your continued
    encouragement, your friendly smile, and your
    concern for me.
  • Sincerely,
  • _______ _____________________________
  • and the 2012 Cardinal Football Team

54
Little Brother / Little Sister Night
  • Dear Little Brother/Sister,
  • This coming Friday, September 00th, has been
    designated as Little Brother/Sister Night for
    the Pleasant Plains High School Football Team.
    Would you please be my guest at the football
    game? Both you and your parents will be admitted
    to the game free by wearing my football jersey.
    At half-time of the varsity game all of our
    special guests will be asked to stand and be
    recognized.
  • Playing football and participation in athletics
    has been a positive experience for me. It has
    taught me the value of discipline, hard work,
    sacrifice, and being part of a team. I hope that
    I have been, and continue to be a positive role
    model for you and your peers.
  • Just because you are shorter right now doesnt
    necessarily mean youll always be looking up to
    me. This is our way of saying thank you for
    caring and for being there.
  • Sincerely,
  • ______ _______________________________

    Saturdays. (We are looking for a person to
    coordinate these meals for the 2012 season)
