The Stateliner football program is fundamentally dedicated to the pursuit of excellence. We are aware that excellence is a constantly sought but seldom attainable goal. We feel that success is measured in terms of how committed you are to reaching your full potential.

It is our belief that by following the three guiding principles described below that our student athletes will attain this goal.
