Pre-Season Truth: What a player does or doesn't do during the summer will have a huge impact on the type of season they will have.
Mentally tough players get there first. First to practice, first to meetings, first to focus in, first to speak up, and first to step up.
When a coach sets high standards, the winners will love it and the lazy will leave it. Either way, the team improves.
Players do not differ in how much they say they want to win. They differ in the price they are willing to pay to win. Big difference.
Lazy players do a little work and think that they should be winning. Winners work their socks off and still worry that they're being lazy.
