Great Passers Think Score First

To be a great passer, you have to think like a scorer. The best passers think score first, and it’s something you really have to instill in your players. It seems counterintuitive, but it actually makes a lot of sense. Players who drive to pass are usually pretty easy to read. Players who drive to […]

Not A Spur

We think that great performance can make up for bad behavior. This belief is WRONG.
