Coach’s Message

4.11-415 

Star’s Football Family-

I first want to thank you for the contributions made to our boosters club over the past few weeks to make the 2nd Annual Top Golf Booster Fundraiser successful. This year did not disappoint. A great event held for a great cause run by great people. To me, moments like these are a microcosm of what a successful program should be. It reminds me of chapter 3 of our book study Power of a Positive Team. In this chapter, Jon Gordon discusses the importance of losing your ego and simply investing in the following belief. 

CARE MORE … DO MORE… ACT MORE! 

In my line of work, ego needs to be kept in check.. It is elementary to start believing your hype or making decisions based on protecting your ego. In reality, the head coach must always ask themselves the following question. 

Is this good for the program or good for my ego? 

While I am not perfect, I try my best to lose my ego and focus on being a servant to our program and doing everything I can each day to make our program one that you are proud to be involved with. This message translates into every corner of our program. Whether it is a coach, player, or parent. If we lose our ego, we can care more, do more and act more for the greater good.

Star’s Football Family-

Welcome back or maybe you are still on vacation and going to steal a little more time away. Either way, I hope you have had an amazing week. I for one could not have had a more enjoyable week away from the grind. Took my family to Florida for some fun in the Sun. We did it all! Disney, spring training baseball, fishing, and even a day at the beach. Each experience is filled with joy, laughter, and love. It is yet another reminder to me of the importance of the experiences we give is one of the most important parts of our life. I will always take experiences over monetary or commercial items. Give me a day away doing something with my family or team and I will be a happy man. Needless to say, it was a blessing to be with my family and more importantly spend some quality time with my daughters. As we enter the final home stretch of the school year our football activities will be ramping up and the importance of our program staying connected will be paramount. Lots of great moments lie ahead so let’s get right into it.

Star’s Football Family-

Good evening, a beautiful Sunday to cap off a very busy week for our program. Lots of opportunities for our program to improve and I truly believe that our players, parents, and staff took advantage of every opportunity. Thank you to our parents for spending an hour with the program on Wednesday for our monthly 4th phase meeting. Thank you to our staff for giving countless hours to both the offseason performance training, as well as the youth outreach program. We connected with over 100 kids from our community. Regardless of their future school, our mission as a program is to provide an ELITE experience to each and every one of them. The highlight for me was last night when one of our little campers spent the last part of his evening collecting autographs from our players and coaches. It is one of the moments that you want to press pause on because it highlights the true vision of our program. The goal has been and will continue to be about connection. As we move into our final week before spring break, I will focus on only the essentials. We will be back in full swing after the spring holiday. I wish you health, happiness and some needed R & R.

Coach’s Message

Star’s Football Family-

Gotta love March, you can have all 4 seasons in one day. With spring sports in full swing, there is a lot of action at the school. I am taking the time to appreciate it and enjoy the buzz that comes with spring. It is important to always appreciate what we have because we know how fragile life can be.  As our program moves into March, we increase our investment and step up the preparation of our student-athletes.  We had a great opening week of spring performance training. This spring we will be working with the girl’s basketball team and wrestling, it is cool to see our kids bring the juice.  The footballs have been pumped up and the equipment is getting ready to be moved into the school. I always like to think that when the clocks spring forward, the program springs into action. From here on out, there will be opportunity after opportunity for our program to connect and strengthen our bond. Personally, this is what I live for. I want to bring the very best we can each day. Your pride in our program is important to me.

Star’s Football Family-

What a beautiful spring Saturday, with 70-degree temps and a southern breeze. Spring athletics are in full swing and there is definitely a sense of hope in the air at school. I have always felt that the springtime in a school can be a special place. The kids are excited because summer is coming, but not as excited as the teachers are! I am really big on hope. While I think “hope” is a poor gameplan, I do believe that “hope” can get a person through the hard times.  Hope allows us to dream of a better future. It can be the light at the end of a long tunnel.  Right now the world is a scary place. And it is my hope that we will get through this and be a more unified world. My hope for your family is that you all stay healthy and safe. Enjoy every opportunity and I am grateful to have you in our program.

Coach’s Message

Star’s Football Family-

Spring is here, and it is always such an exciting time. The spring seasons are right around the corner. During the spring the weather will eventually turn and the beauty of this area truly blossoms. Nothing is more enjoyable than a spring breeze and catching a baseball game or watching our kids perform on the track and field.  Bottom line we have to enjoy the moments as they happen. To our athletes trying out for a team, best of luck.  I applaud your courage as it is never easy to put your skills on the line and get judged by others. Win or lose be proud of the risk you are taking and give it your best.  To those who are gearing up for the summer, the football program has an action-packed-filled spring Quarter 2 and we are excited to bring you great experiences throughout these coming months. 

I would be remiss if I did not address the unprecedented world affairs gripping the world right now. While I do not feel this newsletter is the place for political views I will say that if I am learning anything through this, it is to embrace my family as often as possible. Life is fragile, freedom is fragile and I will not take it for granted.  I hope you enjoy this snapshot of our program. North Star Football is a special place and I am so appreciative of all of you and your continued support.

Star’s Football Family- 

Greetings from balmy St. Charles!!! AHHHHHHHH! 45 degrees today and it felt like 85. I hope you got a chance to enjoy the afternoon with your loved ones. I spent the day with my family. Let me tell you,  it is just what the doctor ordered. Growing up as a first-generation Italian American in Chicago, my family has always been the foundation of my life. Sundays were spent at my Nonna’s house. Eating, laughing, eating some more, fighting, and then yes eating again! As a boy, I didn’t get the opportunity to appreciate it as I do now. What I would give to go back to one of those Sundays. It was special, now as an adult, I see just how hard my family worked to make those moments possible. It was not always easy to take the time to spend together but for my family it was necessary. I have taken that lesson and formed much of my life around it. In our program, we are a family. We will laugh, cry and yes eat together too. It will not always be easy to take the time to stay connected but in the end, we understand it is necessary. Because a family is invested in each other’s being. Families are selfless for one another. Families are prepared to do whatever it takes to protect the family. In our football program, the “family” will always be the most important thing. As we move into this next phase of our offseason, I am excited to bring new and exciting experiences to help us build and bring our family together.

After 13 weeks and 52 team opportunities, we have our winner for the 2022 Winter Platoon Challenge. Congratulations to the Orca’s our Linebackers group. They did a fantastic job of investing and preparing all winter long. Their level of accountability was elite and the selflessness shown to support each other was awesome. 

Congratulations to Soren Erickson and Abel Anell on being the top point recipients for the winter performance program! These two young men invested over 90 hours and 4000 minutes into their own development! They will be receiving a gift from the program.

Our final Elite Leader of the Winter block is Senior RB/LB Johnny Vendl. John has not missed a lift in his 4 years at North. He has dedicated his time to becoming the best teammate and football player he can possibly be. There is not a more deserving person of this week’s award than Johnny.

Star’s Football Family- 

Happy Superbowl! Still not sure why Superbowl Sunday is not a national holiday.  It has all the makings of a great holiday, football, family, and food.  If you are anything like me the pregame is on at 11 am and the chips and dips start flowing at noon.  I always appreciate the pomp and circumstance that Superbowl Sunday brings. It is quintessential Americana at its best.  I truly hope you get a moment to enjoy the game tonight and more importantly you get to enjoy yourself with family and friends. Because at the very heart of it all football is a connection game, it brings young and old together for a moment. In our St. Charles North Football program our vision is to connect the community through the game of football and the focus for this newsletter is to give every key stakeholder an access point into our little corner of the world.  In the edition, we will focus on the fantastic events coming to our program in the coming weeks and months.  Each year the St. Charles North Football program strives to bring the very best experience to our football families. This year we are very excited to bring some new and exciting opportunities. The motto for the coming season is “Level Up” and we are committed to that message.

Coach’s Message

2.6-2.12

Star’s Football Family- 

Happy Groundhog’s Day! I cannot help but see the irony in this time of year and the movie that changed the way we all look at Ground Hog Day. If you are unfamiliar with the movie. It is a classic comedy with Bill Murray as the lead character Phil Connors. In the movie, Bill’s character is a weatherman who is sent out to cover the story of Puxatawnee Phil (the gopher who either sees his shadow or not). The main theme of the movie unfolds as Bill Murray’s character ends up reliving the same day over and over again until he finally realizes his greater purpose in life. It is then and only then that he is able to move past the day and into the next. It is a great story that many of us can relate to this time of year in the midwest. Winter is in full swing, the holidays are over and the canvas is void of color. It is very easy to fall into a routine of getting up, going to work, coming home, going to bed, and repeating.  Study’s have shown that humans have a psychological response to this time of year.  In these winter months, our body goes into survival mode. The brain enters what experts call reptilian mode. The focus shifts to survival. The main goal is to preserve and move on regardless of the surroundings.  We begin to focus less on others and more on our own self-preservation.  I am no different than any of you. Each day is a challenge to “show up” and “arrive” at the moment.  So how do we combat this “reptilian brain”? In our program, we talk to our players about taking the focus away from the individual and placing more importance on the greater purpose. Studies have also shown that when we take our attention away from ourselves and look to others it can be the catalyst to kick-starting the mind and body into a more positive state.  In the St. Charles North Football program this is a great opportunity to talk about our value of selflessness. Being a servant leader is the foundation of our program. This week we focused our individual efforts and the positive impact it can have on our teammates. Instead of just drudging along just to get along we flip the mindset and prepare to be at our best for our teammates.  In the coming weeks, I encourage our football family to change our lens and look outward and the positive impacts we cna make if continue to believe in the greater purpose.

Coach’s Message: 

1.23-1.29

Star’s Football Family- 

What a fantastic week for our program. Nothing gets me going more than watching our program improve. Attendance was at an all-time high, the effort and spirit in the room were absolutely palpable.  I cannot thank our players enough for their accountability and investment in each other. As head coaches, we hope our message gets through to our kids and sometimes we honestly don’t know. We constantly talk to our kids about taking action and how we have to fall in love with the process. We want our kids to get addicted to progress. Our goal is to build habits so deeply into their lives that they know no other way but to keep putting in the work. This week we got took a huge step in the right direction. 

The month of January is a busy time in high school football. Anybody who says football only lasts August through November is a bit off the mark. Running a football program is a 24/7  7 days a week job. There are very few moments in my week where the program is not somewhere on my radar. In January in particular we begin to have college coaches come into our building to meet with our players. This can become very busy at times with multiple schools coming in daily. This particular week we had about 20 schools come in through the day.  On Thursday we were fortunate enough to have two high-profile schools in our weight room watching our kids workout. Unfortunately, when we do have schools my attention is a bit diverted to help cater to their questions. In these instances, the tendency of the players in teh room can be to lose focus and go through the motions. Well, not this group, quite the opposite! The leadership and accountability to an ELITE level of investment were on display. The energy and effort our kids lifted was truly inspiring. It was so noticeable that one of the coaches even commented on how well the boys were doing. In my world that is the highest praise, a program can receive. When ownership of the standard is held by the players then the program can truly reach its full potential.   

This is the beauty of the off-season. If we approach it with intent and focus we can find many moments that will help us to unlock our fullest potential as a team. It is moments like these that will open doors for us to win our 1st state championship. I believe this. 

KEEP CLIMBIN’ 

IRON STAR FOOTBALL 

With the dawn of a new year, I feel this is a great opportunity to reintroduce our Iron Star Values. As a program, our values have been and will always be the foundation of our belief system. Everything we do as a program is built around the facilitation of the message that our values deliver. At St. Charles North our values are known as Iron Star Football. Each point on the star represents 1 value. None more important than the other. Each value owns an equal stake in the program, much like each parent, player, and staff member. As the head coach, it is my purpose to deliver an experience that goes above and beyond the game of football. Iron Star football is the antithesis of this message.   

This week our program will be taking a deep dive into our value of PREPARATION.

When teaching our values to our players we will focus on 3 aspects of learning and understanding. 

Values: The “WHY” of our program

Standards: The “HOW” of our program 

  • Standards define how the values will be executed 

Outcomes: The “What” of our program 

  • This is what can happen if our values are believed and executed with flawless detail 

Here is what our players said about what PREPARATION  is to them. 

Value: PREPARATION 

Standard: North Stars should always have the necessary materials, equipment or scheme prepared so that can contribute to the betterment of the team. Preparation is a key to winning and we support only behaviors that WIN!

Outcome: When we are prepared will practice and play with confidence. We will know our roles and be responsible for their flawless execution in our games. Being prepared in school will also contribute to our success in both the classroom and on the field. Preparation is a habit and it can be developed with time, consistency, and persistence.  

Preparation is a foundational element to all success. It can be as simple as laying out your clothes for the next day or having your bag packed for the morning. It is a habit and it can be learned. When we talk to our kids about preparation we focus on what we are not doing and look at the friction points that are inhibiting us from truly developing this trait into our everyday lives. Just like all of our values it is behavior and it is important to the overall success of the team and individual player. 

As usual, I strongly encourage you to have a talk with your son or daughter about what they are investing their time and effort into these days. I know when my daughters and I talk about it I always learn a little bit more about what is important to them at that snapshot of their life. 

QUARTER 1 WINTER OFFSEASON UP-DATE

Platoon Challenge Update 

Week 9’s Elite Leader is Anthony Taormina. Anthony is a current sophomore who started for the Stars this past fall season. Anthony is a tremendous asset to the team. His leadership has blossomed into more than just self-accountability. He now has an influence on other players in our program. In our program that is what we look for when we are trying to develop our future captains. No longer is the question “ how are you doing ?” it becomes “ how is everyone else doing?” So happy for Anthony! Truly a blessing to watch young men flourish in our program

JOURNEY VS DESTINATION 

As we embark on this winter off-season, I want to stress the importance of focusing not just on the destination we are striving to achieve. Getting to the top of the mountain is a great goal, but to make this a reality, we must first embrace the journey we are about to take. The day-to-day climb will feed our souls and build the behaviors that we will need to reach the destination. Focusing on a destination is not a terrible thing to do but often it is just a point on a map and it offers no benefits until the destination is reached. On the flip side, when we focus on the journey we can appreciate each small step that we take in preparation for reaching the destination. 

Finally, our communication loop must be clear, concise, and accurate.  Please take the time to read emails, newsletters and check our website www.scn4thphase.org As always, if you have any questions please reach out to any of our group leaders

Coach’s Message: 

1.9-1.15 

Star’s Football Family- 

Greetings from St. Charles….Missouri! LOL, I am writing to you from along the side of the mighty Mississippi in a quaint little town called St. Charles. This weekend I had an amazing opportunity to come down and clinic a new staff on program building and culture sustainability. I have to say the staff and administration were beyond generous and the whole experience was truly wonderful. First, I want to say thank you for making this program one that people want to know about. Without players and parents like yourself who invest so much into making it the best, I would not have much to talk about! I spent the better part of 14 hours meeting with their staff, boosters, parents, and administration discussing the importance of the overall experience and making the greater purpose the focus of the program. 

Anytime I get the opportunity to speak in front of others, I hold it in high regard. I know that this is my opportunity to cast a bigger stone into the waters and spread the ripple I that is SCN FB further into the world.  In preparation for this event, I spent countless hours reviewing and reflecting on our SCN FB program. I always appreciate the work that goes into preparing a speech because it forces us to look into our own walls and evaluate if we are holding true to the standards that we have set for ourselves. I have to say that I could not be prouder of where this program currently is. After 10 years of tireless work by all of us, I believe that we have created a program that not only sets the standard for high school football in the country but continues to rewrite that standard by constantly pushing ourselves into new uncharted territory. 

I met a lot of great people who seemed to be very familiar with what we do. It was extremely humbling to have people who I have never encountered know about our Iron Star Values or our platoon challenges. It goes without saying that being a Northstar is truly special. I consider myself blessed to have this opportunity each and every day. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for our program but I believe it will eventually end with us holding the state championship trophy. I BELIEVE THIS!! 

IRON STAR FOOTBALL 

With the dawn of a new year, I feel this is a great opportunity to reintroduce our Iron Star Values. As a program, our values have been and will always be the foundation of our belief system. Everything we do as a program is built around the facilitation of the message that our values deliver. At St. Charles North our values are known as Iron Star Football.

Standards: The “HOW” of our program 

  • Standards define how the values will be executed 

Outcomes: The “What” of our program 

  • This is what can happen if our values are believed and executed with flawless detail 

Here is what our players said about what investment is to them. 

Value: INVESTMENT 

Standard:  Support Behaviors that Win. We will invest our most valuable assets of time, energy, and effort into each other daily. We will only support behavior that gets us closer to victory and have an intolerance for behaviors that lose. 

Outcome: When we invest time into the greater purpose, we begin to build the trust triangle. Trust is built through connection, competence, and character. We cannot build a connection without investing time together. 

Investment in any form has a compound effect. In our program, we not only talk to our kids about the investment into the program but subsequently the return on investment that we can expect. Just like a financial investment if we place our resources in the right spots and at the right time we can maximize the return. The goal is to cash in on the football field when the moment presents itself. 

As usual I strongly encourage you to have a talk with your son or daughter about what they are investing their time and effort into these days. I know when my daughters and I talk about it I always learn a little bit more about what is important to them at that snapshot of their life.

Our week 8 Elite Leader is Senior to be Nick Jenco. Nick is a phenomenal young man who has truly blossomed in our program. As a sophomore Nick joined his SCN brothers and sisters for the first time and quickly became and impact player.As a junior Nick continued to impress both on and off the field with his high motor and elite level of preparation. Needless to say, this off season Nick has taken the next step in his process and become a program leader and I know his return on his investment is coming this fall!

JOURNEY VS DESTINATION 

As we embark on this winter off-season, I want to stress the importance of focusing not just on the destination we are striving to achieve. Getting to the top of the mountain is a great goal, but to make this a reality, we must first embrace the journey we are about to take. The day-to-day climb will feed our souls and build the behaviors that we will need to reach the destination. Focusing on a destination is not a terrible thing to do but often it is just a point on a map and it offers no benefits until the destination is reached. On the flip side, when we focus on the journey we can appreciate each small step that we take in preparation for reaching the destination. 

Finally, our communication loop must be clear, concise, and accurate.  Please take the time to read emails, newsletters and check our website www.scn4thphase.org As always, if you have any questions please reach out to any of our group leaders

Coach’s Message: Ripples 

1.9-1.15 

Star’s Football Family- 

My message this week comes to you directly from my heart. This past weekend I was out of town to put to rest my wife’s grandmother Lucy. While she was not my blood grandmother over the past 20 years Grandma Lucy became a very large part of my life. Her death at 100 years old is a testament to her relentless positivity and philosophy on life. It is something I would like to share with you as I feel we can all take something from this.  

Lucy was born in 1921 and lived to be 100 years old despite living through the great depression a world war and a global pandemic. She had 5 kids 15 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.  Lucy was tough but loving, she understood that life was not fair but never made excuses. She always kept her eyes forward and remained positive in spite of the struggles in front of her. She would say what was on her mind but only spoke when she needed to be heard. I remember very clearly when my wife and I were dating and she called me over to her. Pulled me to her and whispered in my ear: 

Lucy:  “ So you gonna marry my granddaughter or what? “  

Me; Yes Ma’am – ( a year later we were married) 

The bottom line is she gave love and in return, she received it back tenfold. I think that is what I have taken from this experience the most. At her funeral, she was surrounded by what she had created with her love. Her children arranged a beautiful ceremony, her grandsons were the pallbearers and her granddaughters read from the bible. It was moving, to see the impact one person can have.  It reinforced my belief that we all have the capability to make an impact in life. It reminded me of a quote from the Dalai Lama 

I want you to understand the mission of the program clearly and concisely. We are people over players, each day I step into the school my goal is to make an impact on your son or daughter. The vision of this program is to spread this ripple as far into the world as possible. However, this cannot be done without all of us. This week let us all see what type of ripple we can create in a positive way. 

Staff Updates: 

Coach Rick Magsamen –

Coach Magsamen will not be returning to the North Star Football program next year. Coach Mag’s is a dear friend and the program owe’s him a lot. Over the past 10 years, he has helped lead the defense and bring this program to the top of the 7A football world. We wish him well in his next venture and appreciate all he has contributed over the years. 

IRON STAR FOOTBALL 

With the dawn of a new year, I feel this is a great opportunity to reintroduce our Iron Star Values. As a program, our values have been and will always be the foundation of our belief system. Everything we do as a program is built around the facilitation of the message that our values deliver. At St. Charles North our values are known as Iron Star Football. Each point on the star represents 1 value. None more important than the other. Each value owns an equal stake in the program, much like each parent, player, and staff member. As the head coach, it is my purpose to deliver an experience that goes above and beyond the game of football. Iron Star football is the antithesis of this message.   

This week our program will be taking a deep dive into our value of ACCOUNTABILITY. 

When teaching our values to our players we will focus on 3 aspects of learning and understanding. 

Values: The “WHY” of our program

Standards: The “HOW” of our program 

  • Standards define how the values will be executed 

Outcomes: The “What” of our program 

  • This is what can happen if our values are believed and executed with flawless detail 

Here is how the value of ACCOUNTABILITY is built within our program. 

Value: Accountability 

Standard: Taking action in all we do. If you see something that needs to be done…DO IT! It’s about solving problems and not turning a blind eye to anything.  

Outcome: If accountability becomes the norm and we all take action then we will lighten the load for each other. The heavy lifting will become light and we will be able to move mountains. 

Our program is built on accountability, our players do an amazing job of this. They continue to hold the cards with this value. Each year our level of accountability is determined not by the coach but by how the players take action. 

Parents, I encourage you to maybe have a dinner time talk about this value with your son and learn how they view accountability in our program. 

KEEP CLIMBIN’ 

QUARTER 1 WINTER OFFSEASON UP-DATE

In the SCN FB program, we develop an individualized plan for all players. We focus on the holistic development of each individual in the following categories. 

  1. Physical
  2. Mental 
  3. Tactical Advantage
  4. Technical 

This past week we communicated our goals with the players. It is always a great experience for me to see them read and process what we are asking of them. Inevitably it leads to much deeper discussions about their own personal development. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED Platoon Challenge Update 

Our week 7 Elite Leader is Senior to be Henry Warsaw. Henry is a 3-year starter who has developed himself into one of the top-rated Ol/ DL in the state of Illinois. More impressively, Henry has taken his leadership into uncharted territories. No longer is he the “lead by example “ guy. Now Henry is the lead by leadership guy. By this, I mean Henry will now hold his teammates accountable to the standards. We always say that the difference between friendship and teammates is a fine line. A friend will allow you to be below the line while a teammate will hold you to the line. 

GO-RILLAZA ARE #1 FOR 2 CONSECUTIVE WEEKS

As we move into 2022 one of my goals as the leader of the program is to create more opportunities to play the game for our youth and in-building athletes. With that said Mike Taormina and his I9 program have launched a very exciting 7 on 7 program that we will be participating in this April & May.

Coach’s Message

1.1-1.8 

Star’s Football Family- 

Happy New Year or should I say a happy better year. I hope this message finds you well, but looking at our % positivity rate in the county I am sure that this correspondence finds some of you in the midst of the virus. For those who are dealing with Covid right now, please know that our program is here to serve you. I pray for your family’s health and well-being.  While I am not one to wish time away, I do have to admit that I was not holding on to 2021 with any sort of deep regard. It was a year of struggle and adversity. While it can always be worse, 2021 was not short on emotional or physical tests. Needless to say, the message I took from 2021 was that we must live each day and appreciate the basic necessities of life. Health, safety, and family are my triumvirates of well-being and each day that I can assure myself that I have all 3 is a good day.  As we begin to ring in the new year, let us appreciate the new beginnings and journeys that will present themselves to us. As the leader of this program  I will continue to strive to be a better version of myself each and every day. Knowing full well that I will fail at times but collectively I can improve.  In our program we talk to our players about personal growth contributing to program growth. The message is clear.

We all have skin in this game! 

Individual growth = TEAM GROWTH .

As the head coach, it is my purpose to deliver an experience that goes above and beyond the game of football. Iron Star football is the antithesis of this message.   

In the coming weeks, we will be using one value to put to the forefront and take a deep dive. As a program, our players will be doing the same. I am excited share the part of the program with you. 

KEEP CLIMBIN’ 

QUARTER 1 WINTER OFFSEASON UP-DATE

Over break, we had 3 open lifts and I want to commend those young men who invested the time to prepare their bodies. It shows a high level of selflessness and accountability to show up when most do not. Because of the looser format, we do not name an elite leader. However, with the start of the new year, we also are beginning quarter 2 of our winter off-season program. During this next quarter our platoon challenge will heat up and our focus will become more finite towards our player 4 quadrant development. In the SCN FB program, we develop an individualized plan for all players. We focus on the holistic development of each individual in the following categories. 

  1. Physical
  2. Mental 
  3. Tactical Advantage
  4. Technical 

Starting Tuesday, we will be communicating our goals with the players and taking the necessary steps to benchmark and track their progress on these initiatives. I truly believe that is this type of detailed prescribed development that separates our program. I want to be fully transparent to our players and let them know that they own their game and development. There are no secrets here and if they want or need from our staff they have every right to discuss that with us.

Coach’s Message

12.19-12.26 

Star’s Football Family- 

Okay, is it time for a collective sigh? We made it to the end of the year. Boy, what a year it has been. 2 seasons, a conference championship, a few heartbreaking losses, and a partridge in a pear tree! In all seriousness, this year has been hard. So many ups and downs were endured amidst a pandemic that just seems as unrelenting as ever.  Through it all, we persevered and kept our eyes forward.  We gave our Stars the very best of us. Every parent, player, and coach should hold their head high and feel proud of the efforts that were made.

SURRENDER

This past week I got the phone call that we all are dreading from the school nurse. One of my daughters had tested positive for Covid.  For a moment I have to admit I let the emotion of the moment control my response. My mind immediately went to the worst-case scenario. All I could think about was my beautiful daughter being sick and I have no control over the outcome.  This “sky is falling” mentality is so easy to let into our thought processes. Our brain is built to look at the threats and deem whether we should fight, flight or freeze.  It is at this moment that we have the choice of how we will handle our response. It was at this moment that I leaned on the teachings of our program. We speak to our kids about the importance of our emotional intelligence. We use the equation of E+R=O or event + response = outcome. Simply stated, our response to any particular situation will play a major role in the outcome of that event. Bad call … respond.  Turnover… respond. My daughter has covid … respond. The severity of the problem or the stage it is on should never change our response. When adversity hits we will be at our best. We will not rise to any occasion but we will use our training to “show up” to the situation and respond.  So how do we respond? So easy to say but so hard to accomplish. What is the correct response? For me, when I am dealing with a situation that is requiring me to respond I have found that surrendering to the moment allows me to relinquish control of the event and focus on how I respond to ensure the best outcome.  10 years ago the word “surrender” was not in my vernacular. However, now older (not as much wiser) I understand that surrendering is not giving up. It is simply allowing the suffering of worry or anger to move past me. Surrendering gives me the clarity I need to gain a precise focus on the response. 

 I want you all to know how appreciative I am of each of you. Your strength has given me strength, your positivity has given me positive energy and your passion for our program has fueled my determination to stay true to our mission, vision, and purpose.  Simply put, thank you, may you all have a wonderful holiday break.

WINTER OFFSEASON UP-DATE

This week ELITE LEADER AWARD goes to Trevor Storm ‘23. As a coach, I am always observing our players and making mental notes of how I believe we are developing. In my opinion, it is the little things that make big things happen. Trevor is a “little things” type of leader. He has developed and honed his leadership to allow him to look outside of himself and help where ever and whenever it is needed. 

Taking team attendance, handing out folders, connecting with the lower level players. No stone goes unturned when it comes to Trevor’s leadership. Trevor is not the type of person who needs a title to be a leader but this week his efforts earned him the prestigious title of “Elite Leader”

 This past week tragedy struck one of our football families. Freshman Carson Leeper’s family came home to find that a fire had started in their home and despite the efforts of the fire department they were not able to salvage the home. Immediately, our parents went into action and because of your efforts, there have been over 15k dollars raised via go fundme.  The Leeper’s have a long road ahead and while the money is a great start, they will need our support for the long haul. Please consider donating to the link below. All proceeds will go directly to the Leeper’s and their rebuilding process.

12.12-12.17

Star’s Football Family- 

A Happy final week of the semester to all. A long road traveled and a huge accomplishment. . As we close in on this final week of the semester it can be a stressful time for our student-athletes. The 17-week climb is coming to an apex and for some and grades may hang in the balance. My message for this week focuses on compassion. While compassion for others is the spirit of the holidays, I would like to focus on self-compassion.  In our program, we talk about leadership starting by owning our 20 square feet. That often begins with how we treat ourselves. In life, it is so easy to treat others better than we treat ourselves. This week I am asking our players to do the following: 

SELF-COMPASSION 

Give yourself the same kindness that you would afford others. 

When faced with difficult life struggles, or confronting personal mistakes, failures, and inadequacies, self-compassion responds with kindness rather than harsh self-judgment, recognizing that imperfection is part of the shared human experience.  

In St. Charles North football I want our players to recognize the importance of one of the most important relationships that we will ever have. The relationship with ourselves. This can be difficult in this modern age with so many seeking approval or likes from complete strangers on social media. I stress the importance of finding your value not based on others’ opinions of you but your personal effort in your journey. This week as our student-athletes tackle finals for the first time in 2 years I am hoping that we can all rally around them and give them the support they need. Let us remind them that they are enough and they have the power to persevere!

KEEP CLIMBIN’ 

WINTER OFFSEASON UP-DATE

This week our Elite Leader was Abel Anell. My hat goes off to this young man. I have had the privilege of getting to know Abel much better this past off-season. Let me tell you, he is as mature of a leader as I have come across. Abel understands the values of Iron Star Football. Not only does he understand but he elevates them. A brother of 4 siblings Abel wears many hats and does so without any hesitation. On the field, Abel’s selflessness shines through as he played 5 different positions for the sophomores this past season.  During this off-season, Abel has stepped into a leadership role that cannot be denied. He brings others up and shares his path with anyone who is willing to put in the work. With players like Abel, this program is going to do great things.

Switching gears, the entire program has made huge strides these past 4 weeks of training. The boys have shown a consistent commitment to each other. Attendance has been fantastic with weekly attendance above 85% as a program. This past week was our first week using our 5 rep max numbers to guide our training and by the looks of it our boys hit their numbers and did it with a smile on their face. I want to thank all of you for allowing me to work with your children. The time in the weight room is special and probably one of the favorite parts of my job. 

SERVANT LEADERSHIP

 I want to thank our players and families who gave their time this Sunday to help sort toys for the Toys-for -Tots campaign. It was a great time and a fun way to get into the holiday spirit.

BANQUET & 4TH PHASE 

Another Thanks goes out to our parent group for putting together one of the most memorable banquets we have had. The auditorium was looking great and the amount of time our parents put in is truly humbling. A special thank you goes out to Tricia Sharkey. Trish will be leaving our position as parent group leader at the end of the year and I could not be more grateful for her contributions. Running our parent group is difficult and running 2 seasons in one year is unheard of but Trish did so without hesitation. She not only handled everything thrown her way but made this program better.  We grew close over these past 15 months and I felt that not only was Trish an asset to our program but she became a great friend. THANK YOU TRISH!  This program owes this year to you!

JOURNEY VS DESTINATION 

As we embark on this winter off-season, I want to stress the importance of focusing not just on the destination we are striving to achieve. Getting to the top of the mountain is a great goal, but to make this a reality, we must first embrace the journey we are about to take. The day-to-day climb will feed our souls and build the behaviors that we will need to reach the destination. Focusing on a destination is not a terrible thing to do but often it is just a point on a map and it offers no benefits until the destination is reached. On the flip side, when we focus on the journey we can appreciate each small step that we take in preparation for reaching the destination. 

Finally, our communication loop must be clear, concise, and accurate.  Please take the time to read emails, newsletters and check our website www.scn4thphase.org As always, if you have any questions please reach out to any of our group leaders
