Coach Zavagnin commits to St. Joseph High School Football Program!

In December 2009, St Joseph High School Head Football Coach Mark Zavagnin turned in a letter of resignation to the administration after a long self assessment.
Mark Zavagnin brought talent, knowledge, experience and a winning mentality to the football field at St. Joseph, Westchester. He gave his football players the benefits of his skill, expertise and commitment to excellence. "Our young student athletes learned valuable lessons from Coach Zavagnin," shared St. Joseph High School President David McCreery.
...
Coach Zavagnin was hired to build a successful football program. In a letter written to the football parents by Zavagnin in December 2009, he shared his reasons for resigning. "The football program made significant strides but I feel I fell short of the goals that were set for St. Joseph football and me three years ago."
After the news was shared with the team and the letter was mailed to the parents, Zavagnin was flooded with emails, letters, phone calls and visits from parents, students and alumni who played for the coach. The positive impact Zavagnin had on the student athletes reached beyond the sport.
One former student athlete shared with the coach, "You pushed me and taught me that good things happen when I work hard. Another said, "You taught me what it means to be successful. A parent called and shared with Zavagnin, "You are the one person who made a difference in my son's life. Another parent said, "You had such an effect on my son's life, he is not the same young man who started high school at St. Joes. You taught him discipline; you gave him motivation and showed him how to set and achieve goals."
In January 2010, Zavagnin met with Administration and shared his change of heart. He affirmed, "I believe we can get to our goals. We will have a competitive, winning team in addition to leaving a positive impression on the lives of my student athletes. It may be that we build self-esteem, character, a strong work ethics, leadership skills and respect for self and others. My goal is to provide support, direction and a sense of family for each student athlete."
Zavagnin, forced to reexamine his definition of success stated "Football is a game of willpower, commitment and patience. Success is measured by wins and losses on the field. In addition to that; I look for success in terms of effective leadership in the classroom and on the field, and discipline in the weight-room. The realization that the young athletes were learning valuable lessons that would carry them throughout their lives helped solidify his commitment to the students and the football program.
Coach Mark Zavagnin declared in January 2010 his renewed philosophy on success. "Everyday there should be some measure of success in school and on the field. It is the small wins that keep the student athletes coming back. Zavagnin continued, "I offer every student the opportunity to be a good football player. Everyone is challenged to lead and given the tools to do so. The future of our football success is defined by the end product; our student athletes who come to high school as boys and leave as men."
Background: In May 2007, Zavagnin accepted the position of Head Football Coach at St Joseph High School in Westchester. He brought to the position an outstanding academic and athletic record along a dedication to Catholic education. In his high school days, Zavagnin, a two-way varsity player at St. Rita High School in Chicago, was selected as a Co-captain on the 1978, 13-0, Illinois Class 5A football team. He was named 1st team All-Catholic League, 1st team All-State, Illinois News Gazette All-State and to the National Top 75 Football Recruiting List. He graduated in the top 10% in his class.
His academic and football career earned Zavagnin a full scholarship to Notre Dame.
...
In 1983, the Chicago Bears drafted Zavagnin. A back injury ended his dream of playing professional football.
With his football playing days behind him, Zavagnin focused on the corporate world and applied his work ethic and dedication to a career in business. After nearly two decades, Zavagnin worked his way up to Vice President of a Fortune 500 company, left his corporate life to be closer to the field and his family.
...
Zavagnin started, "It's safe to say that effective leadership is a quality lacking in today's society.
