The mission of our Ankeny football program is to build character in our student‐athletes, continuously pursue excellence, and overcome adversity. The football field is our classroom and the game is our vehicle to teach lifelong lessons, create memorable experiences, and have fun. Effort, attitude, respect, discipline, character, loyalty, and sacrifice will be used to build a successful program. Our plan is to expose student‐athletes to a family atmosphere that will build on tradition and continue through generations of players. We will always prepare, practice, and compete to win on the field, in the classroom, and the game of life.
