FORTITUDE:  Mental and emotional strength in facing
difficulty, adversity, danger, or temptation courageously.

Apply this to your life:  Keep tending your garden.  Work on being the best YOU that you can be during this time
of difficulty.  Be the best son & grandson, athlete, and student that you can be.  Avoid negativity.  Avoid social
media.  Avoid those things that you have little control over.  You CAN control your reaction to adversity.  Go out  
and RUN and then help your family in 1,000 small ways.  Find a way to further your education and your career
exploration beyond the day to day virtual schooling.

From Brighton High School's Mission Statement


Developing character is the single most important aspect of interscholastic athletics. Student athletes will appreciate hard work, and discipline. They will
persevere through adversity. They will develop and maintain positive attitudes and conduct themselves with class. They will epitomize sportsmanship.


Student athletes will be great teammates. They will support, encourage, and push one another to be the best they can be. Every individual’s success will
be celebrated with the understanding that the individual success is secondary to the team’s goals. The relationships they build will last well beyond their
high school years.


Nothing is ever handed to you in the real world. Student athletes will embrace competition. They will perform their best in pressure situations. They will
be filled with pride knowing they gave all they had and never shied away from competition.


Student athletes will commit to the team. They will mentally and physically dedicate themselves to our goals. They will make individual sacrifices knowing
they are strengthening our team.

Committed to developing young men of character who relentlessly strive for excellence on and off the course.
