The Mission of Gladstone Football is to develop a value-driven program that teaches teamwork, good sportsmanship, and self-discipline by providing every athlete with a set of lifelong skills that will enable them to be a positive example on and off the field.
Brotherhood ..... Football is a tough and demanding sport where 50 to 80 young individuals share daily experiences that mold them into a fraternal entity, this forming a brotherhood. Brother may not always get along, but in the end, brothers have each other's backs in times of competition and the adversity faced as a student-athlete both on the field and in their personal lives.
BIG TEAM- little me ..... No member of the program is bigger than the program or the team. A successful program doesn't have "Me" guys and egos. we are a team and we win or lose together. It takes individuals acting as a whole in order to accomplish what is necessary to become a successful program
PRIDE ..... Personal Responsibility In daily Excellence. Each member of the football program has a responsibility in doing their best on a daily basis. The core principal relates to everything from being a great student to a being a great son. It especially holds truth on the football field where the starter has to give his best at all time as does the player who may be on scout team for the majority of the season. No job is too small.
10/90 rule ..... 10% of life is what happens to a person, the other 90% is how they react. This is a simple concept to remember and is applicable to everyday life and on the football field. We continuously inform the players about this rule because something major will happen to our athletes on a weekly basis and how they react has the biggest impact on the outcome of the situation.
Cut No Corners ..... Detailed and discipline behavior is what drives success. This is a timeless truth that can be shown within every great sports organization. Not "cutting corners" is a way to remind athletes to stay disciplined about the small details. This is important because every small detail and decision an athlete makes changes their performance in times of adversity.
