“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”

How is your preparation and concentration during the week of a game? Do you pay attention to your coaches and what they expect of you? If so, is that really good enough?

Jeff Saturday, an ESPN commentator and former NFL player summed it up this way when talking about his former position coach, line coach Howard Mudd. Saturday said that Coach Mudd always expressed one thing to the players he mentored. “I expect you to play better than I coach you.”

As a player, it’s your responsibility to plan, prepare, and perform. Even if parents, fans, or teammates want to point fingers if you lose, make sure that you have prepared to the best of your ability.

Strive to exceed the expectations of your coach. By doing so, you will never have anything to be ashamed of, win or lose!
