The Program

Philosophy

Philosophy of Cypress Christian Football

Football at Cypress Christian is much more than a competitive game that young men play. It is an intentional curriculum that uses football to build men. The intent is to produce men that will live with reckless abandon for Christ in all things at all times; men that will be the same in public as they are in private; men that will be great husbands and fathers in the future; men that will learn to build deep meaningful relationships that will be used to sharpen each other and hold each other accountable for a life time. Our success will not be measured in wins and losses, but in how well we close the gap between our potential and our performance as players and as men, in fact it will probably take ten years to determine just how successful this season really will be.

Goal

For every player to know Christ and to make Him known.

The purpose of Cypress Christian Football is threefold:
  1. Use football to teach principles and values that will result in the building of courageous men who will live sacrificial lives to the glory of God both on and off the field.
  2. Purposefully build deep meaningful relationships that will last a lifetime.
  3. Develop each player to be the best football player he can be.
Theme Verses-Football is Worship
  • Colossians 3:17—“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
  • Colossians 3:23-24—“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
Biblical Football is Competing
  • By the Power of God
  • According to the Word of God
  • For the Glory of God
Excellence in Competition

If we are going to worship through football then we must pursue excellence on the field. We must strive to put the best team on the field with the goal of exceeding our potential as individuals. We will strive for excellence as coaches by developing the best offensive and defensive schemes to fit our personnel.

Values

Love, Faith, Humility, Perseverance, Commitment, Trust, Encouragement, Contentment, Courage, and Servant Leadership

1. Called to Love
  • John 4:18-19—“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because He first loved us.”
  • Corinthians 13—Love Never Fails
  • Matt 22:36-39—Love God, Love Others
  • Our responsibility is to Love: Coaches must love the players and players must love each other.
2. Relationship Driven
  • Romans 15:5-6 “May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
  • Be intentional about building community, encouraging and motivating through love.
  • Players will be called to publicly encourage one another.
3. Servant Leadership
  • Matthew 20:28—“The Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve.”
  • Captains will serve the team, and the varsity will learn to serve the middle school team.
4. Humility - Be the First to Give All
  • James 4:10—“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.”
  • Philippians 2:3-4—“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests but also to the interests of others.”
  • Faithful, Available and Teachable
5. Live Lives of Sacrifice
  • The player must die to themselves for the sake of the team.
  • John 12:24 “Unless a seed falls to the ground and dies, it cannot bear fruit.”
  • John 15:13 “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”
  • Being part of a team is being part of something bigger than ourselves.
  • Being part of team means we give up rights and gain responsibilities.
6. Success is measured in how we “Close the Gap.”
  • We are competing against our own best self to close the gap between our potential and our performance.
  • We want a player’s best everyday in every situation, but what God desires for us is greater than that—it is perfection.
7. Persevering with Eternal Perspective
  • 2 Timothy 4:7—“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
  • Pursuing excellence on and off the field through Christ is a life long journey, not a short term goal.
  • Success is a road not a destination.
  • You can always do one more: one more block, one more tackle, one more sprint.
8. Live with Passion
  • Revelations 3:16—“So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”
  • God wants us to give the maximum effort in all things, at all times.
9. Love to Lose
  • Malachi 3:3—“He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver.”
  • We love and want to win every game, but it is only a byproduct of true success; therefore, we are free to play at our best because there is no fear of losing.
  • God’s victories often come through our defeats and, as a result, our character gets refined.
Putting It into Practice
  • Team and position group prayer and encouragement after practice
  • Weekly theme and scripture verses
  • Weekly testimonies from coaches, dads and others in the community
  • Mentoring and discipleship programs between coach and players, upper classmen and under classmen, high school and middle school. Every high school player will be assigned a middle school player to mentor and encourage.
  • Build relationships and partner with local churches and high school youth groups.
  • Team service projects to allow players to love their community.
  • Continually challenging and educating players through team chapels in the “how to” of being godly men, both on and off the field.
The Coach’s Challenge
  • Share the gospel in every practice
  • Motivate through love
  • Encourage every player every day
  • Future focused coaching: Always correct in an uplifting way
  • Communicate the reason for every drill
  • Put players in positions to succeed
  • Be approachable and coachable

Both our High School and Middle School programs use this Philosophy. Our Middle School program is also designed to teach basic fundamentals, prepare athletes for high school and ensure that they have a positive football experience so that they continue to play football in the future.

I hope you will come be a part of what God is doing through football at Cypress Christian, whether it is through having your son play for the team, coming out to our games, supporting our football booster club or through prayer. I would prefer you do all four, and I look forward to partnering with you in the future as we work to build men through football.

In Christ,

History & Tradition

History

Football at CCS started as a flag football program in the early 90’s under Coach Howard Young and transitioned to a 6 man football program in 1999 under Coach Frank Harmeier and Coach Delnor Neufeld. The following year in the fall of 2000 Cypress Christian played its first season of 11 man football under the direction of Coach Summers. Jerry Hornsby took over the program in 2003 and took Cypress Christian to the TAPPS State Playoffs in 2004 and 2005. The 2004 team was the District Runner Up. Coach Spenn became the 5th head coach of Cypress Christian in 2008, the 10th season of Warrior Football, and the Warriors finished as District Runner Up and returned to the playoffs for the third time.

In 2009 the Warrior football program reached new highs winning its first ever District Championship and its first ever playoff game. The Warriors also set a school record with 10 wins in a season. These accomplishments were achieved in front of a new 1,000 seat grandstand complete with stadium chairs. The program had the largest number of players in school history with over 40 high school and 30 middle school players.

The 2010 season saw the Warrior return 18 starter and put together a 7 game winning streak in route to a seoncd straight district championship. The Warriors advanced to the second round of the playoffs and came within inches of completing an amazing comback that would have advanced them to the final four.

In 2011 season the Warriors put together 8 straight wins, another district title and played a great game against Brook Hill (eventual state champion) in the TAPPS State Semi Final Game. Andrew Gallowy broke all the receiving records of his brother thanks to Ben Mitchell making the move to QB but the records were short lived as Frank Aufmuth would break them all again in 2012. Jason Groll piled up the yards on the ground and those records still stand today.

The program continues to grow and the excitement is building about what God has in store for Cypress Christian Football.

Traditions

Just Being Different

There are enough regular football programs out there. We are striving to be different and to build an intentional community. We do a lot of crazy things (ice cream sundaes and water balloons to name two) throughout the season to make football fun, interesting and exciting while we build men, grow in Christ and play great football.

Encouragement

Our job as coaches is to love the players and their job is to love each other. We spend time at the end of each practice giving players and coaches the opportunity to encourage each other. We want to be a team that wins the sideline battle by being loud, excited and positive no mater the circumstances.

Combative Day

During each week of early camp we will take one hour at the end of practice to break up the team into teams of 5 or 6 and play a variety of competitive drills and award the winning teams and individuals.

Big Circle

We end every tackling drill with a big circle where we show case the best hitters of the day.

Challenge Drills

Each practice ends with a challenge drill between the 1st offense and 1st defense. We keep score throughout the week and it helps us to be ready for the opening kickoff on Friday night.

Conditioning is a Privilege

We believe that conditioning is a privilege and players must earn it. Players help to determine the amount of conditioning we do and we run more after a good practice than we do a bad one because we earned the right to make ourselves better by conditioning.

Blue Jersey Warriors and Blue Shirt Warriors

Each week we give out a special practice jersey to an offensive and defensive player that has demonstrated a great ability to Close the Gap between their potential and their performance during the week. Every player has the opportunity to become a Blue Shirt Warrior by earning a “Close the Gap” t-shirt throughout the off season and regular season.

Wednesday Testimonies

On Wednesdays we end practice early and give dads, coaches, pastors or others in the community the opportunity to share their testimony and athletic experience with the team. This is a great opportunity to pass on a wealth of wisdom from one generation to the next.

Pregame meal

Prior to every varsity football game we have a great pregame meal as a team prepared by our team moms and parents.

The Huddle

After every football game the coaches, team, parents and fans all gather in the South end zone to give out game balls and encourage one another. This is a special time of building players up. For many people this is their favorite part of the season.

Family Fun Day

Just prior to the start of spring football we put on a Football Family Fun Day for the elementary students. Seniors autograph mini footballs and the rest of the team teaches elementary students basic football fundamentals while they try to learn everyone’s name.

Last Hit Drill

After the last game of the season we practice the following Monday and put on the pads one last time for the “Last Hit.” This is an opportunity for seniors to symbolically pass the torch to the juniors so that they can carry on the tradition of Cypress Christian Football.

A Different Kind of Program

The Cypress Christian football program is different. It is an intentional curriculum that uses football to teach life. The program is centered on Christ, built on love, and exists to build godly men. We strive for excellence both on and off the field, as we seek to glorify God in all that we do. Our program uses a concept called Biblical Football that emphasizes competing 1) by the Power of God, 2) according to the Word of God, and 3) for the Glory of God. As coaches, our goal is to use every aspect of football to point players towards Christ and to prepare them for life.

Parents choose Christian education because they want their kids to learn more than what is in the text books. Why not choose a football program that is teaching more than just X’s and O’s? If you are not already, we hope you join our football community in the future as a player, parent, or fan. For more information on how you can support our program click here.

Quotes and Testimonies from Players, Parents and Fans

I appreciate how the CCS program is focused on developing Christian men of character as well as learning football skills. This past football season was a very positive experience for my son where he learned valuable lessons in teamwork, loyalty and dedication.
Warrior football has been such a positive and exciting experience, not only for our son but for our whole family! Under godly leadership, the boys not only learn how to play football with excellence but how to love one another both on and off the field.
Cypress Warrior Football is a place where my two favorite things GOD and FOOTBALL are morphed together and they make TEAM.
Cypress football is such a special part of my son’s school experience! He loves being part of the Warrior team, and we love that he is surrounded by such a Godly coaching staff!
Warrior football is about more than just football – it’s about teaching our young men how to be a part of a team and strive to honor God in all that they do. This program is awesome & I am looking forward to seeing how it and our young men grow in the coming years.

Whether you are a player, parent or fan, Coach Spenn would love to hear your thoughts

College Recruiting

Many of our players have dreams and goals of playing college football. The Cypress Christian Football program is committed to finding opportunities for our players to play in college. This can be an exciting opportunity but it can also bring up a lot of questions. It is one thing to find a player a place to play college football, but it is another to find a player a place to play college football where you as parents are comfortable sending your son with regard to the spiritual and academic environment of the school.

This page is designed to give you a solid starting point and things to consider as your son considers the possibility of playing college football. There is a misconception out there that you get recruited by college coaches coming and scouting HS games. This is actually rare even for the biggest stars at the biggest schools. College coaches have limited time and budget and they are playing football when we are so most of their recruiting is done in the off season through film, camps and relationships with high school coaches.

Getting the opportunity to play college football is often more about marketing and connecting with coaches. Our new website with player profile pages and game video is a great way to get the news out about your son. I am constantly working to build relationships with College coaches and we have already seen that pay off with regard to scholarships for our players.


Player Responsibility

Work hard to be the best player and student they can be. A coach puts his reputation on the line when he recommends a player to college coaches. Coaches are more likely to recommend players that have proven themselves to be dependable, consistent and hard working.


Parent Responsibility

  • Help your son determine what kind of college is best for them, public vs private, large vs small, Christian vs secular to name a few choices.
  • Determine the amount of financial resources that are available and what your student will need.
  • Talk with coaches to determine the appropriate level of football your son should pursue in college and then help your son make a realistic ranking of the colleges that he would like to pursue further.
  • Sign your son up for camps run by those colleges over the summer.
  • If your son is considering playing at a NCAA Division I or II school then they must be registered with the NCAA clearing house. Please visit NCAA for information and forms.


Coach Responsibility

Both the program and the coach's benefit from our players playing in college but our role is really that of a consultant and not an agent. We have several things that we are planning to do as coaches:

  • Develop your son’s football skills and abilities to the maximum extent possible.
  • Provide video and statistical data to college coaches via our website, the Houston Chronicle and MaxPreps.
  • Build relationships with college coaches.
  • Provide lists of quality college football camps to parents and players.
  • Be available to talk with parents and players about the players potential to play college football and recommend quality programs at the various levels.

Whenever a Coach recommends a player to a college or a college to a player he puts his own and the Cypress Christian Football program’s reputation on the line. It is important to us that we find the right place for your son to succeed.

Develop a Plan

  1. Create a realistic ranked list of the colleges you would like to attend.
  2. Review that list with Coach Spenn.
  3. Fill out online recruit forms for those schools and\or have Coach Spenn contact those schools on your list.
  4. Plan to attend the summer camps of the schools that are most promising.
  5. Provide game film and personal highlight films to those schools on your list (this will be done in large part through this website with the help of the coaching staff).
  6. Join various online recruiting sites (some are free while others are not). All of our stats will go up on Max Preps but there are others. (www.maxpreps.com, www.berecruited.com, www.rivals.com, www.collegecoaches.net, www.pinnaclepreps.com, and there are others)
  7. Have fun, play hard, and enjoy the experience.

Things to Consider

Level of Play

In general our players would have the best opportunity to play and contribute at the Division III or NAIA level. We do have players that I believe could play at the Division I level. It is a much larger commitment to make it and to stay at the Division I level than the NAIA or NCAA Division III level. Coaches are available to help your son determine the appropriate levels. Summer camps are also a great way to get evaluated by different college levels.

*All colleges offer scholarships even if they do not offer athletic scholarships they will put together a package for you as a football player. It is important to look at the total amount of aid offered by a university and not just the athletic scholarship amounts.

If your son is considering playing at a NCAA Division I or II school then they must be registered with the NCAA clearing house. Please visit NCAA for information and forms.

Distance

How far from home do you want to go?

The further a player is willing to travel to attend college will greatly increase his ability to find places to play college football. There are positives and some obvious negatives to being far from home, I have personally experienced this and I try to not limit God based on geography.

School Size

Large school (10,000+ students) vs. small school (<5,000 students)?

Our players are familiar with small school environments. While all colleges would be larger than Cypress Christian, setting foot on a campus with 40,000 plus student can be an overwhelming experience for a college freshman.

Scholarships

How important is an athletic scholarship?

Most of our players would be able to play at the NCAA Division III level. However, these schools are not allowed to offer athletic scholarships. They do tend to have more academic scholarships available. The NAIA is made up primarily of small Christian colleges and they do offer athletic scholarships. If your son can afford to go to college without a full or partial scholarship they will certainly have more opportunities to play football.

Academic Majors & Graduate School

If the school does not have your major, is graduate school an option?

Smaller colleges may not have the major that your son is interested in. Your son may need to be more flexible in what he wants to do or be prepared to go to graduate school. When I went to Taylor University it did not have an accredited degree in Civil Engineering, but since I was planning to go to graduate school that was not an issue. Speaking as a Professional Engineer in today’s workforce it is a tremendous benefit to have a master’s degree. Graduate school is usually paid for by research or teaching grants so it can be a great opportunity with long term benefits.

Red Shirt Year

How important is it to finish in four years?

Many football programs large and small encourage players to red shirt (practice but not play in games and therefore not lose a year of eligibility) their freshmen year. This allows the player to take fewer hours each semester but they will graduate in four and a half years. If a player is on a full scholarship this can be a great opportunity otherwise there is additional costs. Graduating in December also presents a unique opportunity when a graduate enters the work force or a chance to spend a semester on the mission field.

Missions & Service

It is more than just football

We want to be a football program that does more than just play a game. We are striving to build men and an important part of that growth is learning to serve our community. We want to impact our world for Jesus Christ and we are working to teach this to our players in several ways.

Service

It is our goal to do two service projects as a team each year. We will do one in the fall and another in the summer. There are always needs that arise in our community and we are working to partner with local churches to better identify those needs. During the 2008 season we spent one Saturday cleaning up the homes after Hurricane Ike. In 2010 we spent an afternoon at Boy's and Girl's Country. These projects help to build the team but more importantly they give us the opportunity to show the love of Christ to those around us. We have continued to various service projects every season.

Missions

The football team is planning to go on a short term mission trips. It might just be to another part of Houston to put on football camps and do service projects or it might be down in South Texas to build homes and put on Bible schools. In 2011 we completed our first mini camp in the City of Houston by putting on a football clinic at the Faith Center. We repeated this camp in 2012 as we took a day of practice to impact lives in an eternally way. We are making plans for 2013 already.

We also served as a team along with Houston First Baptist to put on a sport camp every summer in the Houston area. It is always a great experience.

The 9 at 9

We are striving to build godly men. Humbly leading through prayer is a key characteristic of a godly man. We challenge every football player, coach, parent, and fan to spend nine minutes every night at 9PM praying for our community, school, team and individual players and coaches. Each week we have a theme and associated scripture that we ask the players to read through during this time. Taking time to pray for each other is a simple thing that builds community and unity inside the team and will help us to build life long relationships which is one of the goals of our program. Please join us tonight at 9 as we look to impact our community for Jesus Christ.

2018 Football Camp - CCS STUDENTS ONLY

Elementary Football Camp

      • CCS Boys entering grades 1-5, regardless of experience
      • Dates: June 25-26
      • Time: 9:30-11:30 a.m.
      • Location: Warrior Stadium
      • Basic Skills Camp / Non-Contact Camp – No equipment required
      • Cost: $40 (includes a camp t-shirt and popsicle snack)

The camp is open to Cypress Christian School boys entering first through fifth grades in the fall and will teach basic skills and a general understanding of the game of football. If your son had a great time at the Football Fun Day for elementary students in May, he will love this two-day camp. The campers will move through several stations teaching basic principles each day and will be grouped by age and ability so they are taught age-appropriate skills at those stations.

The camps is non-contact, but the boys will learn the right way to tackle against foam pads, how to throw and catch a football, the basic positions on the field, and have a lot of fun competing in football obstacle courses and other competitions. The camp will be run by coaches from the Cypress Christian Football coaching staff and select varsity players.
