The mission of the Taft High School football program is to field a team that excels on the field, achieves in the classroom, and positively impacts our school and community. Every athlete in our program will be treated with respect and dignity as we strive to reach our potential as a team and as individuals. We will always play the game with class, within the rules, and with great pride. Our program and football community will always appreciate and value diversity so that each individual experiences a safe environment that allows each student athlete to acquire the knowledge, the work ethic, and communication skills necessary to become responsible and productive members of society.
