The Yellow Jacket Way

Mineola Yellow Jacket Philosophy


At Mineola High School Athletics our philosophy is to create "THE BEING OF TEAM". We have dedicated a page to this philospophy of Building "The 15" in each Yellow Jacket that walks through our program. We believe that Leaders Create Leaders and that Leaders are teachers. In this process, we hope to create a Yellow Jacket Legacy where each Yellow Jacket will leave their Jersey in a better place.


THE YELLOW JACKET WAY

LANGUAGE THAT EVERYONE CAN UNDERSTAND


NO ONE IS BIGGER THAN THE TEAM


LEAVE THE JERSEY IN A BETTER PLACE


LIVE FOR THE JERSEY, DIE FOR THE JERSEY


IT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO BE GOOD. IT'S ABOUT BEING GREAT.


LEAVE IT ALL OUT ON THE FIELD


IT'S NOT THE JERSERY, IT'S ABOUT THE MAN IN THE JERSEY


ONCE A YELLOWJACKET, ALWAYS A YELLOWJACKET


WORK HARDER THAN AN EX-YELLOWJACKET


IN THE BELLY, NOT THE BACK


IT'S AN HONOR, NOT A JOB


BLEED FOR THE JERSEY


FRONT UP OR STEP OFF
