As a whole, coaches and staff within the program are dedicated to turning their athletes into the best and most well rounded versions of themselves. Miller believes that is what makes the program so successful, on and off the field. 

“It’s something that consumed a lot of your time, but it’s all worth it.” Miller said, “It gives you a great amount of joy and fulfillment doing something that’s going to help you become a better person and a better athlete.” 

A packed schedule with early mornings and late nights allows the players to learn discipline. Strack hopes those skills will transfer over to a successful future. 

“Eventually you will see some measure of success,” Strack said, “I think that’s really important in life, because [success] doesn’t happen right away in life. And so I think they get that from our program as well.”

Growing together, and succeeding together builds a bond within the team, turning the football program into a family. For Lockhart it is this unity that allows them to achieve great success. 

“I think that really does create a bonding experience that we have and the chemistry that we need to have a D1 culture to win those games,” Lockhart said. “We may not be the biggest people out there the fastest, the strongest, but we know what it’s like to fight with our brothers and win a battle.”
