There's a lot of things you can't control in sports...two things however
> can...attitude and effort. If they give everything they've got with a
>attitude it'll be a great time.
My talk with my team will be reassuring them that they have practiced hard and
are ready to play. They need to play hard every play and work as a team and do
not worry about making mistakes-keep playing hard! We need to play great
defense and everyone needs to attack the ball carrier-gang tackle. On offense,
it all starts with great blocking. The average football play lasts only 4
seconds and you need to be the player who wins those 4 second battles. The
score will take care of itself if we, as a team, work hard and work together,
we will be fine.
Our philosophy: These are themes I hope you hear kids repeat at home.
o The score does not matter-we will focus on playing hard and executing.
o Defense wins games
o It all starts with blocking-blockers are the stars
o Play every play to the whistle
