History and Traditions
Totino-Grace Athletics Philosophy: The Eagle Way
The Totino-Grace Athletic Program, inspired by St. John Baptist de La Salle, patron saint of teachers, touches the heart of each player, inspiring them to surpass their own expectations and challenging them to fully realize their God-given ability and potential. The Eagle Athletic Program strives to foster a true sense of community characterized by camaraderie, collaboration, and respect. We emphasize positive relationships among players and between players and coaches. Embodying the value of humility, coaches demonstrate concern for all players—caring for the person, not just the athlete. Coaches continually balance a passion for excellence with compassion for players. Grounded in Christian values and our Lasallian tradition, Eagle Athletics is a tradition of an excellence serving a wide range of student interests with a particular focus on academic success, leadership development, and service. The athletic program at Totino-Grace is student-centered and an integral part of the student’s total educational experience.
