Do you know what’s better than rolling out Lead ‘Em Up Schoolwide? It’s what Moore, Oklahoma is doing
Something special is happening in Oklahoma.
It’s great when individual teams experience Lead ‘Em Up, even better when entire athletic programs do, and absolutely incredible to see what’s happening in Moore, Oklahoma.
Moore Public Schools are in their second year of utilizing Lead ‘Em Up district wide and the impact being made is remarkable.
Our First Lead ‘Em Up Team
The players began taking this team and leading it to another level. The run we made the last few weeks of the season, throughout the playoffs, on our way to a Regional Championship and finally ending up at Xfinity Center for the State Tournament, was absolutely incredible.
What You Can’t See

Success is truly all about the TEAM.
