Coach's Corner

Coach's Corner

Dear Douglas Football Family and Friends,

Dear Eagles Football Family,

I am excited to take over the MSD Football program and with the help of my staff, we will teach the players to be RELENTLESS in every aspect of their life. We will consistently pursue the development of young men who are disciplined, relentless, mentally tough, and who have the ability to lead, serve, empathize with and have compassion for others.

As we embark on the 2019 season, we remember those we lost, and continue to push forward and overcome.  The EAGLES family is more than a tragic event.  We will continue to rebuild this program and community to soar higher and prevail from the PAST. Through Perseverance, Adversity, and Sacrifice, we will Triumph.

How we continue to respond and push forward everyday is the key.  We talk about self- discipline, hard work, and TRUST as being the keys to our success.  Trust your coaches, trust the process, and most of all trust each other. 

Everyday we strive to be better, never staying the same as the day before. We look to soar high in 2019 and beyond.  Go EAGLES!!!!!!

Frequently Asked Questons

Q.  Practice is scheduled during the time my son is suppose to pick up his schedule and his books.  What should he do?

A.  They can leave practice during their scheduled time to pick up their schedule and books.  

 

Q.  The calendar doesn't show what time practice ends?

A.  Practice end times may vary.  We suggest that you wait for your son to call you when practice is over.  Mondays and Wednesday's practice typically run longer as the players lift prior to going out on the field.

 

Q.  If my child is struggling in class, can they attend tutoring at the school?

A.  Yes, please have your child speak to Coach May to let him know they will be attending a tutoring session.  After tutoring they can come to practice.   

 

Q.  My child is an honors student and the practices run too late for him to get his work done.

A.  Many of our Student Athletes are honors and AP students.  They put in hard work on the field and off the field.  Each year we have some of the top academic students on our team.  It takes hard work and dedication to be a Student Athlete.

A.  Yes your son is expected to attend both home and away Varsity games with the team.  Buses will be provided.
