Second Baptist School's award-winning football program achieves success by creating a program that empowers players to lead courageously. The vision of the football team is built on seven different characteristics of an Eagle filtered through Biblical principles. Teammates hold each other accountable through a "boat" system where players are placed into one of three character teams and assigned a partner. Teams focus on exceeding expectations with decisions that are made on the field, in the locker room, in the classroom and off campus. Players receive helmet sticker talons to reinforce hard work and encourage competition. Player-led service projects provide teammates the opportunity to live biblically in their community and develop team mentality.
