“You play to win the game.” Those simple words once said by Herm Edwards are true of football coaches at any level. They want to win. During his remarks at Monday night’s football awards, head coach Von Lassiter said the players were expected to win.

But he said it was about more than that. It was about what kind of person they’d be not just 10 years from now, but how they’d be remembered 100 years from now. Lassiter, a devout Christian, added their eternal recognition was also important.

In his closing remarks, Lassiter encouraged returning players to stand out not only on the field, but in all areas of life. He said the coaching staff was committed to working as hard as possible to making the players not only better as football players, but better men. Lassiter encouraged parents to be involved with the Touchdown Club.
