One of the biggest struggles with high school athletes is motivation. Not just motivation to play the sport they volunteered to play but motivation to put in the required work to be great. I have never been a big fan of rah rah cheerleader type motivation but do believe that the energy of the moment […]

They take the time to figure out exactly what it is they want and constantly check up on the speed of their progress. Constantly talking and finding ways to make faster […]
