Quote: "When I first started coaching and teaching at Christ Church Episcopal School, the motto chosen for the back of our practice shirts was BELIEVE. It initiated a movement that we must believe in God above all else, in each other and in our goals. This will then allow us to achieve excellence. The next year the word was FAITH. It continued a positive momentum forward that we must have faith in what we believe. This year the word is COMMITMENT. It grounds the team to a commitment in what we believe and the faith we have in that commitment. The players, coaches and school have rallied around this principled approach to football and to life."
