The philosophy of the Forest Lake Rangers Football program is to provide a positive high school football experience to all of our athletes, while creating an energetic environment that educates players on the game, lessons of life, and prepares student athletes for post-graduation success. We focus on building a successful team culture through relationship building, recruitment and retention of student-athletes, campus engagement, community involvement, and the overall wellbeing of the program in alignment with the mission of the school as a whole. As Rangers, we strive to be high character people both on and off the field. On the field we will play the game the right way as we look to create a tough, physical and exciting brand of football focusing on the technique and details that it takes to execute at a high level in order to be a successful complimentary football team, where all three phases work in unison towards our common goals.



Our football team is driven by a culture of relationship building in which we seek to become better individuals on a daily basis who focus on earning the respect and gaining the trust of our peers both on the field, in the community, and in our daily lives. Through mentor/mentee programs, player/coach relationships, leadership training and more, we expect to succeed because of the effort we put into our relationships with others.



Our football team will always be focusing on the goals that are set for our program. While we look to achieve all of our goals, it is of the utmost importance that we always preach PROCESS oriented goals, rather than RESULT oriented goals. We will focus particularly on the process that it takes in order to reach our desired outcomes both on and off the field.

Culture & Philosophy

The program motto of the Forest Lake Rangers football program is WORK. No matter the circumstances that exist in our lives, we will always focus on our controllable situations and how hard we work in everything that we do. Whether it is on the field, in the classroom, in the weight room, in our home life, or in our relationships, we focus on putting in the work needed to be who we are meant to be on a daily basis. By focusing on the work, we know we will build a culture that we are proud of where we strive to be at our best as we look to improve in all aspects of our lives one day at a time. At the end of the day, in Forest Lake all we do is WORK.

August 2023

Welcome to August, Ranger Family! We are officially in the month that we start our 2023 football season and the journey together! We had a great summer, with our team coming together and getting better on a daily basis. We enjoyed our time together during summer Ranger Power, our 11 practices and multiple 7 on 7 events that we used to grow as a football team. We recently enjoyed our trip as a team up to the Bemidji State University Team Camp, where we saw tremendous growth and competed at a high level. Our coaching staff and players came away from the camp healthy and proved to ourselves that we are on the right track to a successful football season this fall. Very proud of this group!


Reminder that the season starts up on Monday, August 14th and all players must be registered for football and have an updated physical on file in order to practice the first day of the season, so please take care of that ASAP! Our schedule is on the website, so be sure to check back to that schedule as the season goes along and I will continue to send out our weekly updates through email as well. Looking forward to getting started with all levels (9-12) for the 2023 season!


Go Rangers!


July 2023

Hello Ranger Family! We are through one month of our summer prep program as we prepare for the 2023 football season with our boys. June was a great month, as we saw so much growth with our football team both on and off the field. Through Ranger Power, team practices, 7 on 7 competitions, and multiple community service events serving our community, our boys have bought in and are showing everything it takes to be successful! Commitment and consistency have been our themes through the summer and we look forward to continuing our constant improvement with our boys in the month of July before we get the season started in August. In July, we will walk in the Forest Lake community 4th of July parade, continue our strength and conditioning through Ranger Power, finish our summer practices, 7 on 7 events, and go to Bemidji State University for team camp. Reminder to get signed up for camp if you have not done so yet! We will also have registration for the football season open up in July as well. 


Thank you for all your support, we are more than excited to show off our on field product this fall!


Go Rangers!
