Below are a few quotes I?d like you to read and think about as you head out to practice.

(Head Coach)

"Condition comes from hard work during practice and proper mental and moral conduct between practices".

John Wooden

"I make my practices real hard because if a player is a quitter, I want him to quit in practice and not in a game".

Paul "Bear" Bryant

"If I don't practice for a week, the fans know it. If I don't practice for two days, my opposite knows it. If I don't practice for one day, I know it".


The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them."

Ralph Nichols

"Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success."

Dale Carnegie

"The biggest quality in successful people, I think, is an impatience with negative thinking."
