Northville Mustangs Player Information

Northville Mustangs Constitution

OUR FAITH AND FAMILY ARE MOST IMPORTANT
We continually remind each other that our families should and must come first. Included in that is our faith, should we choose to exercise it.

TEAM IS THE ESSENCE OF OUR PROGRAM
The phrase 'Band of Brothers' is the foundation on which our program is built. No individual is more important than the team. On and off the field we act as a family, building one another up.

SENSE OF URGENCY
Life is short. The opportunity to play high school football is even shorter. We approach every practice and game as if it is our last.

WE ARE LEADERS ON CAMPUS
Northville produces great leaders in the real world. We understand the characteristics of great leadership: results oriented, goal oriented, passionate, disciplined, and able to handle adversity.

WE FOCUS AND FINISH
We concentrate intensely on the task at hand and do not look ahead. We will finish everything we start and do it with great emotion and enthusiasm.

WE HAVE POSITIVE ATTITUDES
We are proactive in our thoughts and behavior. We choose to act in a manner consistent with positive, winning people. We are enthusiastic, energetic people who solve problems.

WE ARE INDIVISIBLE AS A TEAM
We value and respect each individual team member. We listen to each other, we are loyal and trust each other. We are together in all situations and circumstances.

WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE
We look for solutions, not excuses. Insofar as it is within our control, we take responsibility for program success and failures, constantly working to build on success and eliminate failure.

A NHS DIPLOMA MEANS EVERYTHING
Education is why we are here and ultimately our highest priority. We produce educated young men who are also fine football players.

WE WIN THE FIVE CRITICAL SITUATIONS

  1. We outscore our opponents
  2. We win the takeaway/turnover battle
  3. We are less penalized
  4. We win the kicking game
  5. We win the red zone and goal line

WE ARE THE STRONGEST AND BEST CONDITIONED TEAM IN THE KLAA
Our program is geared toward core strength and prevention of injury. We develop ourselves in terms of strength, power, and speed. In becoming more football efficient, our work ethic is second to none. We are proud of our conditioning and anxious to demonstrate it!

OUR PROGRAM IS AN ALL ENCOMPASSING FOOTBALL FAMILY
Inclusion rather than the exclusion will be characteristic of our program. Northville is uniquely great because players, coaches, administrators, faculty, alumni, and friends are all part of our extended football family. Through our conduct we strive to involve the community in the Mustang tradition.

WE OBEY ALL MHSAA, KLAA AND NORTHVILLE HIGH SCHOOL RULES
We intend to do what is legal and right. We play by the rules.
