Our Coaching philosophy at Roosevelt is simple. We are here to build our young people all the way around, not just as football players. By stressing academic achievement and strong character we know that the young people who leave our program will have success no matter where life takes them. We stress sportsmanship and selflessness everyday. We will build physical and mental toughness by challenging our kids to work harder than they have ever worked and we push their minds further than they believe they can be pushed. We will treat every single player in our program with respect.
We work hard to ensure that every single student athlete knows that their contributions to our team are sincerely appreciated. We will praise our kids whenever possible and we will teach our kids when they need to be corrected. We will build them up so they are their very best every day. Our kids are our family! We will take an interest in their lives beyond the football field! We will love our kids and commit to being there for them for the rest of their lives!
Sincerely, Christian Swain Head Football Coach Roosevelt High School
