The DHS Football program’s mission is to build men of integrity and character by teaching the ideals of commitment, dedication, teamwork, good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority. Our goal is to help the young men in the program grow to be mentally and physically stronger, healthy and trustworthy citizens who become tomorrow’s leaders.The program rewards those who are willing to work hard, dedicate themselves, meet academic requirements, and follow the program’s rules.
The program offers teams at the Freshmen, JV and Varsity levels. Over 120 student-athletes are expected to participate each year. The program is designed to develop those student-athletes who are willing to dedicate themselves to the program. The student-athletes learn the importance of loyalty and teamwork, the value of hard work, and the rewards of having a positive and winning attitude.
The program supports the educational objectives of the school district, furthering the education of young people outside the class room. We utilize individual and team goal setting, welcome progressive ideas, and strive to recruit dynamic student-athletes.
