Finally Published – Offense Wins

Believe it or not, this book was more or less complete 6 years ago. I wrote it before I coached in order to remember how I thought as a player. And in reading it again, I realize that I still agree with it! So I will be applying it as best I can in the years ahead. A...

Required Watching – In Search of Greatness

It is impossible for me to overestimate how much I enjoyed this movie/documentary/educational piece, In Search of Greatness. I think it should be required watching for every parent, coach, and player in sports today. Fantastic. Please watch!...

WTYB – #3 – Man-to-Man Defense

I hope this post finds you well and enjoying your season. My theme throughout the season (and really all of youth basketball) is winning the long-game. The tendency in every segment of youth sports is to become so caught up in the now that you adopt a mentality and...
