About Us

A word from our A.D

Why I’m an Athletic Director 

- I’m an AD for those moments when our student athletes become so tired they want to quit but don't.

- I’m an AD for those days when our student athletes are "too tired" to go to their practice but they go anyway.

- I’m an AD because I want our student athletes to learn to be disciplined, focused and dedicated.

- I’m an AD because I want our student athletes to learn to take care of their bodies and equipment.

- I’m an AD because I want our student athletes to learn to work with others and to be good team mates, gracious in defeat and humble in success.

- I’m an AD because I want our student athletes to learn to deal with disappointment, when they don't get that placing or title they'd hoped for, but still they go back week after week giving it their best shot.

- I’m an AD because I want our student athletes to learn to make and accomplish goals.

- I’m an AD because I want our student athletes to respect, not only themselves, but other athletes , officials and coaches.

- I’m an AD because I want our student athletes to learn that it takes hours and hours, years and years of hard work and practice to create a champion and that success does not happen overnight.

- I’m and AD because I want our student athletes to learn to be proud of small achievements, and to work towards long term goals.

- I’m and AD because I want our student athletes to have the opportunity to make life-long friendships, create lifelong memories, to be as proud of their achievements as I am.

- I’m and AD because, I want our student athletes be out on the track/field/court instead of in front of a screen or hanging out on the streets. 

...I could go on but, to be short, I’m not and AD for just the opportunities that sports provides our student athletes. But also because I want our student athletes to develop attributes that will serve them well throughout their lives and give them the opportunity to bless the lives of others. 

Go Warriors!!!!!

The Warrior Mission

The Far Northeast Warrior interscholastic athletic programs mission is to build well-rounded young men and women through athletics by teaching and promoting good character, teamwork, and integrity that will empower our student athletes, and develop self-worth and citizenship.

The Far Northeast Warriors is a Regional Athletic Program. This is an interscholastic Co-op athletic program made up of eight high schools within the Montbello/Green Valley Rach area. (CPA, NCAS, DCIS, HiTech, MLK, Legacy, Vista, PUSH). By combining these schools, we are able to insure that the student athletes in our community are able to complete at the highest level of Colorado high school athletics (5A). Ensuring that our student athletes have the best opportunity to display their talents alongside the best in the state.  

Schools that make up the FNE Warriors Athletic Program

The FNE Warriors Athletic Program has also collaborated with our local area charter schools to offer their student athletes the opportunity to participate with the FNE Warriors Program if their school does not offer a particular sport. Our goal is to open our arms to all student athletes in the GVR/Montbello community. Listed below is the Charter Schools.

DPL Core Values

  1. Students First: We put our student athletes needs at the forefront of everything we do. This means that all decisions are made in the best interest of our student athletes.
  2. Integrity: We tell the truth and we keep our promises. The FNE Warriors program is more than X’s & O’s. We are committed to teaching life lessons.  
  3. Equity: We celebrate our diversity and will provide the necessary resources and supports. We will eliminate barriers to success and foster a more equitable future for all our Student athletes. Our program is 99% minority student athletes, we understand the life obstacles our student athletes will face each day. So, we are committed to preparing our young men and woman for success on and off the field.
  4. Collaboration: Together as a team, we think, we work, and we create to reach our goals. Our student athletes set individual and team goals at the start of every season, and evaluate where they are at the mid-point of the season, and where they ended at the end of the season.  
  5. Accountability: We take responsibility for our individual and collective commitments; we grow from success; we learn from failure. We teach our student athletes that they are accountable for everting they do. Success lies in them taking responsibility for every choice they make.   
  6. Fun: We celebrate the joy in our work and foster in our students a joy and passion for learning to last their whole lives.
