One of my former players called last night. I hadn’t heard from him in a long time. He was on a partial scholarship back in the day. We talked about when, as a player, I had scolded him for not eating properly. When I asked him why, he said, “Coach I don’t have any food.” […]

When I was in graduate school at Mississippi State many years ago, a professor once told our class, “No matter how much you learn and no matter how much you think you know, you will never accomplish much without enthusiasm.” The way you stay enthusiastic for a lifetime is found in the word “enthusiasm.” The […]
