“Master the things that require no talent...”
As a high school coach of a young program, this concept really resonated with me. This being my first year as a football coach, I have found it difficult at times to locate strong messages for our players as we fight for that first victory. This is by far the best I have ever heard. Your show has done a lot for me and the members of our staff here. Love the show and keep fighting, Coach! We’ll be listening in and continue supporting the Yellow Jackets.
Absolutely love what coach is doing, keep up the good work coach!! Playing football at defiance was one of the best decisions I ever made. The community was amazing, Scotty 111, Kissner Sunday’s. The life lessons I have learned have helped to carry me to where I am today.
I’m a recruit from TN and this podcast is absolutely amazing
