Freshman are welcome and invited to come and participate in as many things as permitted by high school rules. All workouts, throwing practice, fundraisers, team activities, etc. are open to them. As August begins you will receive more information from Coach Wills about breaking away from the high school program and having your own practices and games.
4. Summer Team Building
We have a summer team building program called the Eagle Challenge. Players are divided into 10 teams and each summer activity they participate in will earn points individually and for their team. It is a summer long contest, based on attendance, with the goal of winning the latest “swag bag” gift of rewards and prizes. Players: you get points for EVERYTHING! So show up and know that it is important for you to be at as much as possible to prepare you for the season. If you do have other commitments – there is NO PUNISHMENT – you simply don’t get the points for attending.
a) in order to participate on the high school team, you must meet the following critieria:
i) Minimum of 2.0 GPA from 4th term of the prior year. MMHS Football requires 2.5, or a plan to get there.
ii) No more than 1 F from the 4th term of the prior year. MMHS Football requires NO F’s, or start meeting with Coach
b) 10th graders when you register for school – register for Advanced Conditioning, which will be period B-3. That is our football class.
