The Raiders observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Welcome to the Lewisville Flower Mound Football Association (LFMFA) Raiders website. You are probably here for one of two reasons: You are part of the team or you are interested in the team. Either way, I welcome you.
I have been a tackle football head coach for the LFMFA since 1993. I have Gold Level Certification through the National Youth Sports Coaches Association (www.nays.org) and have participated in the Dallas Cowboys Coaches Clinic for youth and middle school football coaches annually for five years. I subscribe to and am a Coach member of USA Football (www.usafootball.com) and have completed their Level 1 and Level 2 Coaching Courses. I also attend the LFMFA’s coaching clinics sponsored each year by local area high schools. In addition to coaching for the league, I am a former LFMFA Board member (www.lewisvillepeeweefootball.com).
The LFMFA has three tackle age groups: 7-8, 9-10, & 11-12. I have been a head coach in all three groups. I started out by coaching my sons who are now young adults.
My coaching philosophy is simple and mirrors the LFMFA’s mission of putting the kids first through fun, recreation, and competition with all actions predicated on the advancement of this attitude. I accomplish this by:
Placing the emotional and physical wellbeing of my players ahead of my personal desire to win.
Treating each player as an individual while they learn in a team environment.
Communicating in a positive manner with the best interest of my players at heart.
Organizing practices that are fun and challenging for all my players.
Leading by example in demonstrating fair play and sportsmanship to all my players.
Being knowledgeable of the rules of youth football and teaching them to my players.
Using coaching techniques appropriate for the football skills that I teach to my players.
Knowing that I am a youth football coach, and that the game is for the kids and not the adults.
At the end of each season I measure my success by knowing that each participant learned the necessary fundamentals, improved their football skills, and most of all enjoyed playing the game. With this attitude we will all be winners.
