Our philosphy in the Trinity Junior High and High School Football Program is what we refer to as "The Titan Challenge."
This challenge is not to be taken lightly and will require an extreme amount of commitment and self discipline on the part of the athlete. Upon acceptance of this challenge, our football athletes are expected to:
1. Make my faith a priority in their life by continuing to develop it through participation in Mass on a weekly basis, and learning more about it by openly participating in their religion classes.
2. Show their parents, teachers, coaches and teammates respect in any and all interactions with them.
3. Conduct oneself in a gentlemanly manner. I will treat all members of the opposite sex with the respect that is due them.
4. Refrain from the use of foul language and inappropriate behavior, on and off the field.
5. Abstain from any illegal activity, including, but not limited to, the consumption of alcohol and drugs.
6. Speak the truth even if it means that one must face the consequences of one's actions.
7. Maintain a 3.0 or higher GPA and always put academics first.
8. Successfully complete at least one foreign language, science, elective math class or participate in one fine arts activity per year.
9. Participate in at least one athletic season per year and mentor at least one underclassman. Conduct oneself as a leader on and off the field.
10. Put others before oneself and give of one's time to community service.
By agreeing to these 10 statements, the football athlete has accepted the responsibility of not only being a better man but also of holding oneself to a higher standard and accepting ALL responsibility for one's actions. There is no financial reward or material prize for accepting and completing this challenge. The reward is in knowing that one will be a better person for it. One will have gained the knowledge that any goal can be achieved if one's mind is set on it, and that the only limits that one will have are those that one places on oneself.
By agreeing to uphold and live up to this challenge, the Trinity Junior High and High School football athlete recognizes his actions not only honor himself, but they honor his family, his school, his town, his faith and all those who proudly call themselves TRINITY TITANS.
