A Message from the Coach
"I am looking forward to the upcoming season, knowing we have a solid group of returning players that are ready to hit the field. We are very excited about the potential that lies within this team and it will be our job, as a coaching staff, to bring that potential to the forefront. We continue to build our program with updated equipment and overall field and indoor facility improvements to allow our players to continue to grow as athletes. The upcoming season is going to be FUN! I invite everyone to come out and watch this year's team and show your continued support for the black, blue and white."
Earn the Right to Win!
It is not a right but a PRIVILEGE and an HONOUR to be a Bison and to wear the BLUE, BLACK, and WHITE team colours. Each player must be a team player and possess the "WE" attitude instead of the "ME" attitude. Individual performance is secondary to TEAM PERFORMANCE! Our team is based on PRIDE and HARD WORK. Intensity and excitement are part of every practice and game. What we put into our practices is directly proportional to what we bring home from our games. We expect all players and coaches to BE THE BEST they can be on every play! Bison players will be CONFIDENT in themselves and their efforts and TRUST each other and the football program. We will play one game at a time and prepare for one team at a time. Each player will possess a mature and POSITIVE ATTITUDE and share the philosophy of WORKING TOGETHER.
