A Letter from Coach Fulton

Greetings SaberCat Nation:

Please allow me to thank all of the Fossil Ridge community for the warm welcome you have offered to me and my family. It has been overwhelming.

As we begin our pursuit of distinction, allow me to remind our stakeholders that the purpose of Fossil Ridge Football is GROW YOUNG MEN.  Our program will be based in Work Ethic, Brotherhood, Character and Effort. Our Team Goal every year will be to qualify for the playoffs. In order to achieve this objective we must OUT WORK our opponents. We are obliged to develop a CAMARADERIE that is palpable. We must be steered by an intrinsic motivation of DOING THE RIGHT THING at all times. Finally, we will be noted as a team that gives UNMATCHED EFFORT.

I want to invite all SaberCats to participate in the program. There are many roles and responsibilities to take on. First and foremost, please become an active member of the Booster Club. This group of dedicated and stalwart supporters are always in need of active collaborators. Their obligations are countless… please offer any and all contributions and backings.

Know that every decision that we make in Fossil Ridge Football is with THE TEAM in mind. We will always treat student – athletes as esteemed entities, but that we win as a team and lose as a team. “Brothers should stand by each other, because this is the first law.”

Fossil Ridge High School is a nationally renowned institution.   Academically, our school is unparalleled. Our faculty is unmatched. Our facility is state-of-the-art. Our SaberCat Theatre, Music and Art sectors are exceptional. Our varsity sports are coveted. Now it is time to merge Fossil Ridge Football with the prominent attainments of the entire Fossil Ridge community.

In closing, let us commit to each other with a positive dedication that is contagious. It is remarkable what can be accomplished when no one cares who gets the credit. THE TEAM! THE TEAM! THE TEAM! (Bo Schembechler – U of M)
