Care as much as you wan them to care and you've got a chance to have a really good program Sloppiness and lack of discipline turns into losing. If I'm asking my players to be disciplined, then i better be disciplined. I cant ask my players to do something I'm not doing myself. If you cant hustle, I cant play you. Being able to communicate with your players is one of the best assets of being a good coach Even though times have changed and kids have changed a little bit, they’re still the same. If have high expectations for them, you’re gonna get it.ContactJackleggett.com Twitter IG FBWebsite and Social Media sites for the show www.aotcpodcast.com Twitter @aotc_podcast Facebook Ahead of the Curve Coaches Facebook group Instagram aotc_podcast
