The relentless pursuit of excellence both on and off the football field.
The mission of the Yarmouth Football program is to develop a program that is viewed as one of the finest in the state in helping young men achieve their highest potential both on and off the field. Every student-athlete in our program will be treated with respect and dignity as we strive to reach our potential as a team. We want our young men to leave the program better people than they were when they joined. We want our players to become men of strong character.
As Vince Lombardi said, “Winning isn’t everything, but striving to win is.” This is the foundation of the Yarmouth Football philosophy. Football is demanding, it is a sport of discipline and will requiring commitment and hard work. Playing football will give back to you far more than it will demand. Football provides a tremendous sense of accomplishment and pride. It fosters confidence, courage, and cultivates life-long friendships and positive habits. Although winning is always an objective, we believe in and work toward what Vince Lombardi said, “The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.” Hard work, discipline, commitment and sportsmanship are imperative. They are how we will define a successful season and a successful program. Being a committed member of the Yarmouth Football program translates directly to behaving as a responsible member of the program and of the community. We must always remember whom we represent.
