(as read out loud by David Locke)

** Emphasis on developing your players: How is that defined? Maximizing individual potential.

The process by which this occurs is best when it operates as a partnership. We as coaches need to listen, and to help our players improve. This is more than skill development, although that is an important piece.

Sometimes that may mean having a vision for a player that could exceed their own hopes and expectations, whereas [it] also leads to the affirmative that practice is everything.

Maximizing potential is impossible without a commitment to practice. That commitment is most impactful when it is accompanied with passion.

[I] feel encouraged that we are following a path that resonates to [me].

** A strong and deep-seated belief in what you want your team to project will allow you to sustain consistency as a coach and a leader through periods of extreme adversity.

Our process-oriented approach to our team’s development as well as that of our individual players [is] important for the way we want to play. Our system reflects what I value as a coach, as well as personally.

Unselfishness, competitiveness, perseverance. The alignment of professional and personal allows for consistency and confidence in the face of whatever the results reflect.

    The sentence after the second set of asterisks is powerful. I wrote it down to use at a safety leadership training in the future. All of this gives reason for why Rudy can be the league mpv.
