"I believe it's critical for my players to understand why we do some things and why we don't do others. Younger players don't seem to respond or progress well to mindlessly doing drill after drill without understanding the reasons for it and the theory behind it. Coaching is about connecting, mentoring and creating relationships. You need to connect before you correct. My hope is that my team works hard, stays safe, and has fun. Our success will be measured on much more than just wins and losses"
