As Vince Lombardi said, “Winning isn’t everything, but striving to win is”. This is the foundation of Bourgade Catholic High School’s football philosophy. Football is demanding. It is a sport of discipline and will, requiring commitment and hard work. It takes a dedicated athlete. Football is not for everyone. However, playing football will give back to you far more than it will demand.
Football provides a tremendous sense of accomplishment and pride. It fosters confidence, courage, and cultivates lifelong friendships. Being a football player is a state of mind, and it is an honor that only a few share. Although winning is always an objective and is important, we believe in, and work toward, what Vince Lombardi said, “The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender”. At the beginning of each season, players should make a commitment to strive for victory.
“How can I make the team better?” should be the question regularly asked throughout the season. Hard work, discipline, commitment, and sportsmanship are imperative. They are how we define a successful season and football program. Being a committed member of the Bourgade Catholic High School football team translates directly to behaving as a responsible member of BCHS and the community. We must always remember whom we represent.
