COYOTES COLLEGE & CAREER DAY AT INDIO MIDDLE SCHOOL: ‘HOW DO I GET THERE FROM HERE?’

(INDIO) – How do I get there from here?

Players and coaches of the four-time champion SoCal Coyotes answered that question at Indio Middle School’s College & Career Day this week, with the same fervor that has made the Coachella Valley non-profit sports leadership program America’s #1 Developmental Pro Football Program.

COVER PHOTO 300The Coyotes, back at the school for the third consecutive year, made it clear: The road to the rest of your life starts now.

Coyotes personnel led class after class through their fine-tuned 50-minute presentation. The team opens with the their thrilling big-screen short movie, and end with the administration of the 50-question, award-winning Coyote Leadership Quiz.

Students were engaged on the following topics –

-Begin with the end in mind;

-You can’t shortcut the process;

-There is power in your passion;

-Find what you love – and attack your dream, one bite at a time.

Team captain Cedric Cox chronicled his rise from the streets of Memphis, Tennessee, to a scholarship at Florida State University, to being waived by the Philadelphia Eagles, before winning four championships with the SoCal Coyotes – and discovering his passion to coach.

Coyotes 2015 leading tackler John Paiz, a Coachella Valley native, spoke about ‘the easy way, or the hard way,’ and selflessly discussed how ‘bad choices’ merely prolong the pain of the process, before a career path can even reveal itself.

Operations manager Heidi Navarro made sure the girls in the room didn‘t get overlooked, and addressed the dozens of professional opportunities for women in pro sports.

Hall of Fame head coach J David Miller drilled down on a Coyote campaign favorite – love is a four-letter word, spelled T-I-M-E. “What you do with your free time speaks to your character, and your life’s direction,” the coach said. “Everything you do, ask, ‘What am I doing here?’ If there’s no good answer, find honor in your exit.”

STUDENTS WHO SCORED 175 or higher on the Coyote Leadership Quiz earned season tickets for their entire families, to the team’s 2016 spring and fall seasons at Shadow Hills – courtesy of General Air Conditioning & Plumbing, Jule’s Market, and Vantage Point Construction.

THE SOCAL COYOTES non-profit sports leadership organization reaches far from the actual gridiron, and touches more than 30,000 Coachella Valley youth each year. Learn more at www.facebook.com/thesocalcoyotes.
