    Hello HAWKS Football Parents!

    Welcome to our 2018 season!  I hope all is well with you and your families. My name is Coach Walter Banks and I am the football head coach at Lake Minneola High School. I am looking forward to the 2018 football season and seasons thereafter. I have been hard at work developing and implementing our HAWKS football program.

    We are FAMILY. What does this mean? It means that we are committed to this football team like we are committed to our family, to our friends, and to the things that mean the most to us. It is imperative we come into the season with the proper attitude. We have to be confident and hungry for the skills and knowledge that will put us over the top.

    My coaching philosophy is all about the process. Whether it is a practice, off-field activity, and/or game; I expect every player to be fully committed and bring 100% effort and focus in order to achieve excellence. Excellence doesn’t happen overnight. It comes from hard work, consistency, the drive to be the best, and a passion for what you do. I want to instill:

    ·       Discipline

    ·       Pride

    ·       Commitment

    ·       Effort

    ·       Toughness(mentally and physically)

    I ask all our players come in to practice and games with a great attitude, give boundless effort and have willingness to learn. This will be vital to our success. For this football team to be successful, it has to be more than just something to do. We are in it for each other, not for ourselves. We all have to take care of each other and have a burning desire not to let the person next to us down. If we take this approach, I PROMISE you will have more fun and a deeper feeling of accomplishment than you have ever had.

    I and my coaching staff are looking forward to coaching your son(s) this season. I cannot tell you how excited I am to be a part of the HAWKS Football Family and about the upcoming year. We are going to have fun and we are going to be successful in all aspects if we follow the process I have designed for our team.

    In the next few weeks, I will schedule a meet and greet with players and parents, respectively.  In this meeting, I will provide an outline of the process for our program and discuss fundraising ideas.  I welcome all suggestions that will enable our HAWKS Football Program to be an exceptional one!
