To IMG Academy, football is more than a game. It's more than a season filled with success stories, tough competition, and the ups and downs of sport. IMG Academy football student-athletes are more than jersey numbers on the field; they're more than peers in a classroom; they're more than a college commit. To IMG Academy, football is a game under the lights but a way of life off the field.
At IMG Academy, football is a brotherhood.
We play for more than ourselves; we play for the teammate standing next to us, the coaches on the sidelines, the teachers in the Academic Center, and the other student-athletes cheering us on from afar. The energy within the program can be felt from the stands inside the stadium or via the livestream from a phone. That's because we hold ourselves to the utmost of standards; standards that have been set before the current student-athletes stepped onto this field. NFL Draft selections, DI stars and National Champions, and even acclaimed award winners - this program is driven by so much more than a scoreboard at the end of a game.
As the 2020 season kicks off on September 4, 2020 when the National teams prepares to face Venice High School and the Varsity team anticipates playing Tampa Catholic, we envision those student-athletes who competed in previous seasons, the No. 1 pre-season ranking propelling us to that first whistle, and the hard work that's prepared us for this very moment. This is 2020; this is football; this is IMG Academy. Check out what this season means to us by watching the hype video below.
Work harder. Get stronger. Be smarter. Play faster. Dream bigger. This is a brotherhood... So, you think you know us? Well, you’re about to find out.
