I searched for glory...and glory I did not see.
I searched for victory...and victory eluded me.
I searched for TEAMWORK and found all three!!!
"Not the victory but the action;
Not the goal but the game;
In the deed is the glory."
Pain, is as essential to life as your breath. If you feel pain you
have a perfect realization that you are still alive. If you are still
alive then you will grow from pain and know assuredly that you can overcome.
If you don't invest very much,
Then defeat doesn't hurt very much,
And Winning is not very exciting.
Almost means not quite. Not quite means not right.
Not right means wrong. Wrong means the opportunity to
Start over again, more intelligently, and get it right.
"Accept the challenge
So you can feel the exhilaration
"The difference between a successful person and others
is not a lack of strength,
not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will."
"... You can't just go out there wanting to win and expect the other guy
not to feel the same way! You must HATE TO LOSE - hate it like you never
hated anything ever before or ever will again! You gotta hate so much that
two blockers can't beat you, that three tacklers can't take you down,
that your blocks become inescapable - do everything you can to
keep from losing! It's not enough to want to win.
You gotta hate to lose!"
Enthusiasm is an upbeat approach to a given task, it is consistent and focused, you have a love for what you are doing, enjoy doing it and strive at all times to do your best because what you are doing has meaning to you. Because you feel this way your attitude is always positive through good and bad, you are enjoying yourself and will let nothing change that feeling!
Emotion is a reaction to the situation you are in, when something great happens you are on top of the
world, when something bad happens it can devastate you if you let it. Football can be an emotional sport
but you can not be controlled by those emotions. No game is over till the final gun and until that time the
outcome is always in doubt, never accept defeat or celebrate victory until the game ends!!
Our mental approach will be to play with consistent enthusiasm and controlled emotion at all times!!!
Enjoy the good things that happen during a game and learn from the bad but never dwell on either. When
the next play starts you will be focused, enthusiastic, and confident that this play will be your best of the
game with no memory of the last play. This approach will be our key to success! Never too high, never too
individually, it is a time to develop mental discipline and Positive habits. All players are expected to Hustle during drills, between drills, to breaks, returning from breaks, to the huddle, to their position, on and off the field, and MOST IMPORTANT SNAP TO WHISTLE. Remember this, "if your on the GRASS give it the GAS!"
and opponents. Giving nothing more and nothing less than you are capable of at all times. We don't ask for 110% because that is not a reasonable request, when you continually try to perform at a higher level then you are capable of you break down, cars cant do it neither can players. Just give your best because no contribution is too small and EVERY player has an important role in the success of the team!
their feelings, Respect their effort, Respect who they are! Everyone who plays this game deserves respect, Respect those who came before you and those who will follow, we are all one family playing the greatest game in the world!
us focus, poise, and confidence, it gives us the ADVANTAGE. Developing and maintaining concentration during practice and games helps to eliminate mental mistakes and penalties. Physical mistakes are part of the game and sometimes no matter how much we practice can not be avoided, we do not worry about these mistakes because over the course of a game they will even out for both teams and we can overcome them. Mental mistakes are the sole responsibility of us, as individuals and as a TEAM! If we eliminate mental mistakes we eliminate our worst enemy and maximize our enjoyment and success as a team!
One of the hardest parts of high school football coaching is motivating young athletes to practice. To do
this effectively, the coach has to foster an understanding of the relationship between training, practice and
peak performance. He must encourage the athletes, provide structured training, and help them gain the self-
discipline necessary for success and excellence on the field.
We must remember that we're coaching people, not machines. We must teach youngsters the mechanics of a sport, but we must also assist in building their character. Showing support and interest in all facets of their lives helps build an effective coach-athlete relationship.
