We have had a good start to our 2014 season. I have seen improvement across the board as our team continues to mature. Though I am happy with with our season to date, we still are not the team we will need to become to win the Sunset League. Over the next couple of weeks, we will have the opportunity to test ourselves with some very strong opponents. Our goal is to win these games but an even bigger goal is to use this competition against the top schools in Southern California to make us a better football team. We will need to play our best and I have full confidence that our team will do just that. I expect our teams to be the best that they can be. Strive for excellence and the record will take care of itself.
The best that they can be is not just a goal for the football field. It applies to the character and academic achievement of our student athletes. I have challenged our student athletes to be leaders of character in the Edison community. I expect a dedicated focus towards academic success. I am asking the parents of our players to expect no less from your sons. The football season is fun, exciting and a wonderful tradition but it is short lived. The grades that your son earns today has so much influence on the opportunities that he will have in the not so distant future. While every year we strive to win on the field, I would trade wins for post high school success in the lives of our players. Let's get both this year - Success on and off the field.
