Opiate Awareness Night

Stop Addiction

Opiate Awarness

Mansfield Police and Mansfield Gridiron Club hosted an Opiate Awareness Night at the MHS Auditorium on Monday, June 6th. School Resource Officers Wright and Connor, along with organizers from the Gridiron Club of Mansfield are proud to have Cory Palazzi as the keynote speaker.

Cory was a prominent student athlete and National Honor Society student at Taunton High School who suffered a shoulder injury for which he was prescribed pain killers.
He found himself addicted to the prescription opiates and later heroin. After Cory and his family share their story, there will be light refreshments in the cafeteria and an open discussion for anyone who has questions.

It is no secret that the Commonwealth has seen an unprecedented increase in opioid use and, consequently, opioid-related deaths over the last four years. According to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, unintentional opioid-related deaths in the Commonwealth rose from 668 in 2012 to 1,526 in 2015. The DPH tracks opiates prescribed to patients in each county.
In the first quarter of 2016, there were 37,439 individuals receiving Schedule II Opioids, that's 6.8& of the population.
This isn't someone else's problem. This is happening here.
For 1 in 15 people, misuse of prescription pain medication leads to heroin use within 10 years.

Leadership Training

The Mansfield coaching staff runs a leadership training seminar once a month for members of the football team.

During these sessions a verity of subjects are covered:
1-Goal setting (Personal life goals, scholastic goals and athletic goals)
2-Handling problem social situations.
3-Involvement in community activities.
4-Honoring the traditions established by their predecessors.
5-Proper nutrition/healthy lifestyles.
6-Team building activities.

These and many other subjects are discussed. Attendance is voluntary.
The object of these seminars is to help make the students a more responsible member of the school and community at large.

The coaching staff believes that it is our responsibility to engage these student athletes in a leadership curriculum. We believe that our student athletes are members of the community first and football players second. By developing the character of our players we believe they will become life-long contributing members of the community.

Mission statement

Provide student athletes an enjoyable, rewarding experience in athletics that also allows them to develop skills and values that will afford them the opportunity to be successful, contributing members of the 21st century society.
We consider ourselves a "college prep" program on and off the field and we will do everything we can to prepare your son to be accepted to a competitive college or university of his choice and, if interested, to continue his playing career on the college level.

Academics:

Attentive, involved and respectful in the classroom.
Conscientious in completing assignments and preparing for evaluations.
Long-term preparation to earn a college degree and pursue a rewarding career.

Goal: Pass all classes and earn Honor roll status (team goal 80%)

Citizenship:

Accept the challenges and responsibilities of leadership.
Be enthusiastic role models for younger student athletes by example.
Become involved in school and community activities.
Volunteer your time to help others who are less able or less fortunate.

Example: Volunteer for leaf raking for the elderly, Relay for Life, Student Gov't.

Athletics:

Develop an appreciation for hard work, preparation and commitment.
Compete with your best effort and intensity, but always with sportsmanship.
Build teamwork skills and the ability to work toward goals with others.
Represent the school and community with pride and class in all areas.

Win with class, lose with dignity, but never surrender!
Team unity is most important in times of adversity!
