    “It’s not the will to win that matters—everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.” – Paul “Bear” Bryant

    Hard work! Team Work! Hard describes the climate at South Effingham High School...This is the atmosphere that you will experience this season as you enjoy the thrill of Friday Night Lights, sounds of the ball leaving the bat on the softball field, dust flying from the trails of our cross country team, the echo of the band playing as one sound, drill implementation from JROTC, blocks and aces from our volleyball team, and the chants led by our cheerleaders. 

    Teams have been selected and coaching strategies are being implemented as teams strive towards excellence. The Mustang nation has prepared to win, and this was evident by summer workouts, camps, and strength and conditioning by our student-athletes and dedicated coaches. Band rocked the campus during their leadership and band camps. JROTC continued to foster leadership during their fitness days and leadership camp.   Volleyball, Softball, and Basketball teams hosted youth camps to not only prepare their student-athletes to be leaders and to become better competitors, but to better prepare the youth for tomorrow. Winning is not always about wins and losses, but about how we teach the youth to be resilient, and we teach the youth to endure hardship to choose the best option and pursue their dreams. The coaches are preparing students for competition, and you will find this evident as you watch each athletic event with great pride, sportsmanship and energy.

     It is an honor to see the dedication and commitment from each member of the Mustang family.  Thank you for supporting our Mustangs and I hope that you enjoy each event you attend.
