SUPERSTARS COMPETITION -Friday July 20th Public invited

The Superstar competition is based on 7 events: Bench Press, Parallel Squat, Power Clean, 40 yard dash, backward 30, T test & total sales. We will rank everyone from the best to the worst in all 7 events. Than add up each individual’s score in all 7 events, the person with the lowest score will win the competition.

1st prize- Trophy, black game jersey and white game jersey {will receive after the season}
2nd prize- Trophy and black game jersey {will receive after the season}
3rd prize- Trophy
 
The football team will be tested in the 6 events.
The team will dress and eat while the cheerleaders will perform
The team and cheerleaders will introduce themselves to the public.
Coach May will talk and announce the Superstar winners and the Senior Pride Champions
 

SENIOR PRIDE CHAMPIONS { will award the champions on the night of the superstar competition}

The Seniors will draft the team on to 5 separate teams who will compete throughout the summer. We will use the same 7 events as the superstar competition. We add up each team members total score and divide it by the number of team members, the team with the lowest average score is the Senior Pride champion. {Summer attendance will break any ties} The winning team receives a T shirt, plaque, minature football, picture in the program and does not have to run 40’s after the 1st two practices on the Monday & Tuesday

 
STRENGTH CLASS- THE KEY TO ATHLETIC SUCCESS
You can earn a total of 6 credits for strength training and it will count toward athletic eligibility. Freshman can take advanced PE once they have completed their freshman PE requirements. I would like for all incoming football players to follow the following scheldule in regards to our advanced PE class. The first & second trimester of your freshman year, you will lift {with parental approval} during your study hall, the third trimester enroll in our advanced weight training class. Your sophomore year take the weight training course all 3 trimesters. During your junior year take weights the first and third trimester and lift during your study hall the second trimester. That will give you a total of 6 credits. During your senior year you will lift during your study hall.

 
 
 
LEADERSHIP
QUESTION: What does it mean to be a leader???

Lead means to excel and be out front at all times. Be first in every drill. Run every sprint hard. Always listen when the coach is talking. Don’t glare at the coach and act like you know it all when you are being corrected.

Eleven men is what it takes to be a successful football team on every down. It takes every member of the team during practices to be successful. Remember you are only a fraction of this team’s success or failure and YOU MAY BE REPLACED.

Attitude is the key ingredient in every team. If the attitude of the upperclassmen is good, everyone will follow. It is most important to have a good attitude about practice.

Dedication is extremely important to the success of this team. You get back what you put into any endeavor you undertake. Dedicate yourself to a successful season.

Examples are important in athletics. Leaders are great examples on the field, in the classroom, in the hallways, and in every situation that they are put into.

Respect your coaches and your teammates. As coaches, we will respect you until you lie to us or cheat on us. Your teammates deserve respect and your help when needed.

Show your teammates how to practice hard, how to play hard, and how to win. Leaders do not have to be holler guys - show teammates the proper way.

Hustle at all times on every play and in every drill. You can not just turn on the hustle on Friday nights when you are accustomed to loafing during practices.

Instill pride in Brownstown Central Football. Never put a T-shirt or jersey with a B.C.H.S. Football logo on without feeling proud about belonging to an outstanding group. Leave the other adornments (i.e. earrings, bandanas) off when you put your jersey on in preparation for practice or game day. This, I believe, is another form of self-discipline.

Positive thinking is often underrated. You have got to believe in yourself and your teammates. I do not believe that we have any reason to go into any game this season thinking that we can not win.
