A Word from our Principal....

I am excited and honored to be a part of such a great community that loves Locust Fork High School and am proud to be a “Hornet”. I would like to welcome you to our football web-site.  Listed below are two quotes by some amazing people/coaches that I hope exemplifies what Locust Fork football stands for.

Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character. - T. Alan Armstrong

Our players put in hundreds or thousands of hours preparing themselves to play on Friday nights. Often times, most people have no idea how much our players, coaches, and their families sacrifice in time to prepare for a football game.  This sacrifice is an all year commitment by everyone involved.  If a team is successful in the win/loss column, it was not by chance, it was through hard work. In addressing character, I will not say that our players or coaches are always perfect, because they are not.  I will say they always strive to do their best whether it is on the football field or in the classroom.  I am very proud that our student athletes set the standard on school behavior and academic performance.

A good coach will make his players see what they can be rather than what they are.    - Ara Parasheghian

Our coaches do some amazing work with our players.  I genuinely believe they get the absolute best out of our football players.  We do not have three, four, or five star athletes on our team.  However, we do have three, four, and five star mentalities and heart taking the field on Friday nights.  Not everyone will agree with all the calls and who plays what and when, but I know our coaches do their best to put the best player in the best position to give us the best chance of winning.  I will also say that as the principal of this school, working with our coaches is a good experience.  I see the effort and the willingness to help their players be the best they can be on and off the field.  I also really appreciate and respect their willingness to help our students/players in their personal lives.  Coaches, the hours spent working with your players and being a positive role model for them does not go unnoticed!

It is always a great day to be a “Hornet”!
