End of the year meetings with the Head Coach are always a little stressful as you walk in and sit down wondering if you're coming back nest season or looking for another team or worse a job!!!
One year as the Off Season was set to begin and I was heading home to Texas I walked into my end of year evaluation with my coach and before he could say anything I asked him what I needed to work on to become a better player for the team and to see more playing time?
He leaned back in his chair sipping his espresso from the tiny cup in his large hands staring at me... all the sudden he lerched forward slamming his chest into the desk and looked me dead in the eyes and says
"Are you prepared to make the necessary adjustments"
I asked "What adjustments are those?"
He replied "Whatever adjustments are necessary!!!"
I went home and had one of the best off seasons of my life and one that would become the template not just for that off season but for my life... YES I made the adjustments that were necessary and to this very day I continue with the thought of making the necessary adjustments
Play Hard... Train Harder... NO EXCUSES
