"The Turnaround": Two Days to Cooper GameDay

by Jason Strunk

What a great practice today! The kids put together a real good two hours of work and we hammered the weights following practice. Great, great way to finish up the last day of full contact for the week in preparation for our game against Cooper on Friday.

The attitude around here is right where it needs to be. Upbeat, positive and just hungry for a win. A lot of credit for the mentality here goes to the coaching staff. I am a firm believer that players feed off the coaches. You are a product of your environment. That is how football programs work. The coaching staff sets the tempo and my staff is doing a great job keeping the kids rolling along with the right demeanor.

When rebuilding programs you need the right guys around. Coaches need to understand that it is a process. It doesn't happen overnight. You need to come in each day re-charged and ready to coach your tail off! There is no time to waste and certainly no time to sit around and feel sorry for yourself about losing. Demeanor is everything!!

I will post another coaches feature tomorrow, along with some other tidbits leading into our Friday showdown against Cooper at Lowrey Field at Plains Capital Park.

Gotta run... time is right right now. Planning for Friday!
