Reflections and Thoughts

  • No one learns as much about a subject as one who is forced to teach it.― Peter F. Drucker
  • Greatness, whether athletic or otherwise, doesn’t come from those content on just being but from those who seek to be the difference.― Kirk Mango
  • Nothing is born into this world without labor.
  • There was a time we laughed at the old guys up on the hill. The ones who graduated a couple of years before us, and who would hang around the school and the ballpark still, and would sit on the hoods of their cars and tell us how when they were seniors they did it better, faster, and further. We laughed because we were still doing it, and all they could do was talk. If our goals were not met, there was next year, but it never occurred to us that one day there would not be a next year, and that the guys sitting on the hoods of their cars at the top of the hill, wishing they could have one more year, willing to settle for one last game, could one day be us.― Tucker Elliot
  • Things that aren't important, that have nothing to do with winning and losing, don't have to be a rule.―John Madden
  • Intelligent coaching is sometimes no coaching.― Marty Stern
  • Coaching does not start with X’s and O’s. It starts with believing that players win games and coaches win players.― Bill Courtney
  • When the Knicks won the championship in 1970, our fans rallied behind us and became our sixth man because they saw a group of five distinct personalities come together and play as one seamless unit. Winning takes a game plan and that's where a great coach comes in. He has to have the vision. He has to be the architect and design a particular style of play that his players can work together and excel at. The great Celtics teams that won 11 championships in the span of 13 seasons ( 1957-69) never changed their system. They played the same game regardless of who their cast was.― Walt Frazier
  • A coach can help, but in the end, it is up to you.
  • The personal lives of the players on the team will either promote or hamper the team's performance. ― George Raveling
  • The job of an educator is to teach students to see vitality in themselves.― Joseph Campbell
  • A common mistake of leaders is to move too quickly and involve too few people.
