1985 Chicago Bears Super Bowl Champ Jim Morrissey at 2019 Flag Fest
From Flag to Travel football, we work to progress our athletes thru a series of player development and technical levels so that they are prepared to play football both today and tomorrow.
In addition to development, we continue to strive to make our youth football and cheer programs as safe as possible with pre-season camps, conditioning and practice drills, additional tackling tubes and no-contact practices, improved player equipment and helmets, mandatory coach certifications and training thru USA Football, and continued experienced volunteer Coaches and Board oversight. Our goal is to develop every player. We know that our coaches and our programs must adapt and adjust to our players - size, weight, strength, and athleticism. In the end, our programs only asks our youth athletes to 'do stuff they can do'. While toughness transcends talent, all players are equally as important on our fields and will develop in different ways. Our goal is to try to always do our best, treat every athlete with importance, and to love doing it (with enthusiasm). We will make some mistakes, but we expect nothing less, and we will do our best to make this a great and smooth football and cheer experience for all by simply working together for our community.
In 2016, MSFB won their 6th and most recent state football championship. While we understand and respect the different ages and program responsibilities, we share a lot of the same principles. Falcons have won 4 national championships and more than 20 regional championships over its 50 year history. Hawks have had a ~88% winning percentage since 1992 and have made the playoffs ever since then. Park Ridge is known as a football town locally and nationally as a result of our collective successes.
We agree that winning is contagious and we look to keep it that way. In 2020, our Board and Directors will achieve our desired and collective results when we:
We're in this together for 2020 and beyond! Park Ridge Football & Cheer can give you and our athletes the foundation. It's up to our athletes to grow and challenge their commitment, character, and heart. We just hope all of us embrace and practice these behaviors and principles over a long period of time. Good luck in your own progressive development and much success!
