A Sport of Love Pt I: Wise Words
“Coaching is a profession of love. You can’t coach people unless you love them.”
Eddie Robinson (1919-2007)
Grambling State University Head Coach, 1941-1997
There are many aspects of football that seem odd to those who have never existed within the walls of its inner-sanctum. None seems odder than the position of love in such a violent and aggressive sport. Yet, at least on the high school level, the sport’s violence and aggression is a manifestation of something else, something much more complex.
Joy in rediscovering what your body is capable of
Among exercising adults, runners are in an exceptional
position. Runners are lucky enough to experience what’s referred to as an
“endorphin high”. While most active adults gleam very little pleasure from
their activity of choice, with most viewing exercise as a necessary evil,
necessary for weight loss or weight control, lowering high blood pressure,
rehabilitating after non activity related injury, or a variety of other doctor
prescribed reasons. Runners, however, get a rush of chemical stimulants.
Who Are We? Creating a Championship Mindset Pt. V
The Art of Correction
It is inevitable that players who are treated differently based on performance become terrified of making mistakes. When players are terrified of making mistakes, athletic success becomes impossible. A player who has been made to feel afraid of failure, as a result of how his coach interacts with him will not have the confidence to jump a route, to step up and fill a gap at the line of scrimmage, to deliver a good ball, or hit a hole hard.
HordoN HEALTH trainer Michael Sannicandro, aka Michael John, is also a Professional Magician. I have watched him amaze entire rooms of people, literally light-up eyes with flashes of overwhelming awe. If you allow magic in, to enter your inner child, it can change your entire mindset. Astonishment, amazement, it can be envigorating because it ultimately forces your mind and body to change your perception of reality, and question your assumptions of truth. This same experience can be found in the athletic qualities gained by a Renegade Coach-implemented Rx, DMC, and RED2 Program.
