Building Champions, Building Men

The Mission of the Three-Time Champion SoCal Coyotes

Football fields across Southern California give the Coyotes a unique platform to ‘Build Champions by Building Men.’ We  impact the epidemic of absent fathers, and to mentor and equip young men on becoming better husbands, better fathers, and better men.

Off the field, however, is the real mission of the Coyotes, where we utilize faith, family and football’ to target these alarming social realities:

  • Roughly 70 percent of all prisoners come from fatherless homes.
  • Approximately 80 percent of all rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes.
  • Seventy-one percent of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.
  • Sixty-three percent of all teen suicides occur in homes where the father was absent or abusive.
  • On average, taxpayers spend more than $8 billion on high school dropouts for public assistance programs, such as food stamps.
  • High school dropouts earn an average of $260,000 less in their lifetime than graduates, giving our nation a cumulative loss of over $300 billion annually in earned taxable revenue.
  • Teen pregnancies cost American taxpayers an average of $10 billion annually in public assistance, lost revenue, and increased health care costs.
  • With the prison population tripling from 1987 to 2013, we now spend $52 billion on year on prisons.

As a football organization, we are determined to lead the nation in prayer. We mentor young men, introduce them to prayer, instill faith-based initiatives in their lives and homes, and challenge them as fathers, husbands and friends.

Our players and coaches annually address thousands of youth at area churches, schools, business and civic organizations about the virtues of faith and family, and we are frequent volunteers with other non-profits and charitable organizations throughout Southern California. Our ‘Coyote Leadership Curriculum’ has been administered to more than 30,000 students throughout Southern California.

The Coyotes Head of Household Work Leadership mentoring Program (HOWL) mentors and employs our players, with an understanding that men with paying incomes have dramatic long-term community impact on widespread social issues.

But statistics can never tell the story of a single soul. We see every player as an opportunity to plant a tree under whose shade we never intend to sit.  We have addressed different cultures, backgrounds, generations and experiences. We are replacing real pain, real emptiness, real longing, real loss and real need with the wholeness of a very real Heavenly Father.

This realization and realignment is making a profound difference within the realm of influence God has given us – the SoCal Coyotes. We offer these results as evidence that as America’s #1 Developmental Football Program’ – we can change families, careers and communities, by building men – one at a time – who are willing each day to make heaven, earth and hell take notice.

Again, we thank you. When we touch the lives of children, the influence is exponential. The Coyotes are proof that children are likely to live up to what their fathers believed in them.

–Proverbs 23:24
