Team Philosophy

Fairfield Football Philosophy

Vision:

To develop well disciplined student-athletes who strive for educational and athletic excellence.

Mission:

Education through Athletics

Athletic participation helps our students grow, learn, and enjoy themselves while they use and develop their personal, physical, and intellectual skills. FHS values the lessons that have long been taught by athletic participation: the pursuit of excellence through personal development and teamwork, ethical and responsible behavior on the field and off, adherence to the spirit of rules as well as to their letter, leadership and strength of character, and sportsmanship – respect for one’s opponents, acceptance of victory with humility, and acknowledgement of defeat with grace.  In teaching these lessons to its students, FHS instills habits which will lead students to better and healthier lives. While winning is not an end in itself, we believe that the efforts by our student-athletes to be their best will lead them to succeed throughout their lives.

Core Values:

Commitment: Be committed to personal excellence.  Our goals must be a priority
Integrity: Do what is right.  Be honest and loyal to parents, coaches, teachers, classmates and ourselves.
Pride: It is a personal commitment; it is an attitude, which separates excellence from mediocrity
Teamwork: Teamwork is achieved when individuals make personal sacrifices to work together for the success of the group.
Discipline: Being mentally and physically tough, to continually improve and become the best student, athlete, coach, mentor, teacher and family member we can be.
Effort: Give everything we have in everything we do.
