    7th Grade Football

    8th Grade Football 


    The goal of the football program at WJH is to prepare student athletes for the rigors of high school competition.  Essential fundamental techniques for blocking, tackling, and playing the game are emphasized both in practice and competition.  A premium is placed on character, mental toughness, and sportsmanship.

    "Fundamentals win it.  Football is two things: it's blocking and it's tackling.  I don't care anything about formations or new offenses or tricks on defense.  If you block and tackle better than the team you're playing, you'll win."  
    - Vincent Lombardi

    football WJH insists that our student athletes be leaders in the classroom as well as on the football field.  Weekly grade checks are made by the coaching staff.  Student athletes who are struggling in class must have weekly progress reports signed by a parent and report for additional tutoring.  WJH student athletes are expected to set the standard for model behavior both inside and outside of school.

    "Leaders are made, they are not born.  They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile."  
    - Vincent Lombardi
