If you’ve ever been to a Liberty High School football game, you know what “We are one” means.

It’s the chant that, without fail, win or lose, emanates from the packed Liberty home bleachers, showcasing the pride and camaraderie that comes with being a Patriot.

Now, the Liberty football program truly is “one,” from top to bottom — elementary school to high-school varsity — with the creation of the Patriots’ new youth football program.

The Liberty Junior Football program will kick off its inaugural season in 2015, allowing kids to grow and learn within one program from age 7 through high school.

“Our goal is to develop a comprehensive, outstanding program that feeds into the Liberty High School program, with a focus on building both the character and competitor in every participant,” Liberty High School coach Steve Valach said in an email to parents.

Students ages 7-14 who will attend Liberty High School are eligible to participate in the new youth program. That means Apollo, Briarwood, Newcastle and Maple Hills elementary, as well as Maywood Middle School students, can suit up for the Patriots.

The youth program is a recognized nonprofit and will compete in the Greater Eastside Junior Football Association league.

Liberty Junior Football is not affiliated with Five Star Football, the program where young future Liberty athletes previously played.

Pick 6 Sports, a professional youth sports organization, will run the Liberty program. Valach is expected to be very involved in the direction of the new youth program.

He will lead an informational meeting about the new program, and unveil its uniforms, at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 11 in the Liberty High School commons, 16655 S.E. 136th St., Renton.
