Athletic Directors Philosophy

Athletic Directors Philosophy

We will pursue athletic excellence through commitment to the highest standards of integrity, ethics, and honesty. The athletic program shall recognize student-athletes’ academic pursuits first as a student and then an athlete. We encourage an atmosphere of fair play, sportsmanship, ethical conduct, in compliance with the Ypsilanti School District, the Southeastern Conference, and the MHSAA. Our athletic program is based on education with coaches as teachers. On the field of play we will give maximum effort and have a win first mentality. Our teams will respect all and fear none.
