There is a great podcast for coaches called Whistle and a Clipboard. It’s ran by Jason Oates.
He reached out to me to interview me for an episode, and I was honored to do it.
See my profile he built below, and give the podcast a listen here.
Chris Fore Special Teams Coordinator at Victor Valley College, Eight Laces Consulting owner, and an English Special Education Teacher, shares his love of learning and creating relationships with his players on and off the field
Definition of Coach
Somebody who is a teacher on the field and a mentor off the field
The relationships that he gets to build with the players he coaches, they keep him young
The competition, winning in practice and or games
Thought for the Day
Be excellent at everything you do
Was that effort excellent
He went through a season where they didn’t win a game and he became sidetracked by the thought of winning and forgot to be a mentor and a teacher to his players
Preparation, being prepared to give your absolute best no matter what the situation mind, body and assignment (film)
Make practice is game like as possible, highly organized and as up-tempo as possible
Be a learner, a lifelong learner
