The Sarasota Millionaires held it's annual team meeting at The Robert L. Taylor Complex Tuesday evening. There were a lot of new, young, fresh faces mixed in with a lot of the veterans. Team owners went over information pertaining to everything from player dues, expectations, and the job of the owners, coaches, and players. Head coach Ernest Givens stressed everything he would like the players to abide by even putting together his own contract for the guys. "It's basically the do's and don't s, a code of conduct. You follow this and we will have no problems, if you don't then you will put yourself up for dismissal from the team" he told the players.
Team practices will now begin every Tuesday's and Thursday's at 7pm, at the Robert L. Taylor Complex 1845 34th Street Sarasota. Practices will continue on both days until briefly taking a break for the holidays. For those still interested in being a part of the 2013/2014 season can still come out to practice with $40. registration, black bottoms, cleats, and a shirt will be provided for you by the team.

During the Millionaires "off season" players, coaches, and staff still have the love of football on their minds. It's during that off time when the area's youth football leagues begin to start up. If you look around practice or the football field you'll see not only Millionaire players who coach but the owner of the Millionaires as well. Owner Calvin Williams has been a part of some of the areas youth football leagues for over 10+ years passing on what was once passed on to him at that age.
The Millionaires headquarters is normally used for the stationary office, the teams class, film & study room, and their treatment center. But Calvin decided he wanted to use it for the youth he coaches as well. On the Saturday before Jamboree Calvin took the teams "skill players" to the classroom where they went over plays and learned a few more before stepping onto the field. One of the young athletes also got "treatment" for a bruised heel he had suffered during practice.
During the class "break" the players were treated to homemade strawberry pancakes and a chance to talk with each other about the things they were learning.
"The youth is our future and the football knowledge they learn now can last them a lifetime. High school, college, and possibly even the NFL" said owner Calvin Williams.

Self-respect cannot be hunted. It cannot be purchased. It is never for sale. It cannot be fabricated out of public relations. It comes to us when we are alone, in quiet moments, in quiet places, when we suddenly realize that knowing the good, we have done it; knowing the beautiful, we have served it; knowing the truth, we have spoken it.
