Coach Redding,
I wanted to say thank you so much for your team's flexibility and willingness to be a part of our Totally Patriots opportunity. I think that the team enjoyed themselves, and I had multiple people from the crew comment on what an excellent group they were; from their enthusiasm and excitement to their excellent questions and engagement with the player.
I wanted to let you know that your team's episode will be aired on September 6th on myTV38 at 10am.
It was a pleasure having your team here.

Mansfield to open season in New York

We will play Archbishop Stepinac High School of White Plains, NY.
As usual, this will be a highly competitive game with a very good out-of-state private school. They had a MaxPrep ranking of #18 last year in New York and return many key players from a team that was 7-4 and lost to St. Anthony's in the playoffs.

Finally, the trip will receive no financing from the school district and will be paid for by parents and fundraisers through the Gridiron Club of Mansfield.


We have secured 100 tickets to the Red Sox-Yankees game on Thursday night and plan a tour of the 9/11 memorial and a boat tour to view the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island on Friday.

The Hornets played the Poets in Baltimore MD. to open the 2013 season

In the past MHS has played:

DUNBAR (MD) 29-26
KEENE (N.H.) 34-00

Leadership Training

The Mansfield coaching staff runs a leadership training seminar once a month for members of the football team.

During these sessions a verity of subjects are covered:
1-Goal setting (Personal life goals, scholastic goals and athletic goals)
2-Handling problem social situations.
3-Involvement in community activities.
4-Honoring the traditions established by their predecessors.
5-Proper nutrition/healthy lifestyles.
6-Team building activities.

These and many other subjects are discussed. Attendance is voluntary.
The object of these seminars is to help make the students a more responsible member of the school and community at large.

The coaching staff believes that it is our responsibility to engage these student athletes in a leadership curriculum. We believe that our student athletes are members of the community first and football players second. By developing the character of our players we believe they will become life-long contributing members of the community.

Be enthusiastic role models for younger student athletes by example.
Become involved in school and community activities.
Volunteer your time to help others who are less able or less fortunate.
