The Lonely Road To The Top - How To Get Into The 3% Of Players That Make It To College

The Lonely Road To The Top - How To Get Into The 3% Of Players That Make It To College

Character > Ability

The greatest joy of coaching is not in the wins and losses, but in the great privilege you have to walk alongside outstanding people for a short period of time. Often these people teach and impact you in a far greater way than you do to them, and that was true in a profound way for me as I had the opportunity to coach the Liberty University Women's Soccer Class of 2016.
