COACH SPEAK

“I think everyone should take the attitude that we’re working to be a champion, that we want to be a champion in everything we do. Every choice, every decision, everything we do every day, we want to BE A Champion.” (Nick Saban)

Tough trivia question this week — Tim McFerrin; Luther Welsh; and Conrad Nix come to mind, but not five.

People don’t realize how hard it is at losing schools. They don’t have recruits coming in like other schools. The moral is so low. But tough times don’t last long. It’s up to principal to bring in quality coaches.

The problem is quality coaches don’t want to go to the schools with that kind of history. You have to find the young guy who has the energy and the football smarts to pull it off. Then that coach has to find like minded coaches to help him. Then your pray you can keep him a few years.
Meadowcreek is not a destination football school it is one that folks transfer from much like many of the Dekalb schools (north of Memorial Drive)where there is the haves and the have nots.
