Are you ready for some football?!!

I visited Washington University in Seattle this week. It's great to see the resurgence of the team under the direction of the new Coaching Staff!

Its old home week in Pueblo Colorado. Tonight we'll be at the CSU-Pueblo Thunderwolves game to cheer on Coach John Wristen and Co. Its great to reconnect with former colleagues and players!

Fight On!

This past weekend, there were a lot of great games and great performances. Several of these were great to witness. For one, the "Never Say Die" attitude of the Cincinnati Bengals who rallied around their Defensive Coordinator whose wife had just passed away. Another was the enthusiasm of Josh McDaniels and a new fire lighting up the Denver Broncos! Yet another was the apology of the 49ers player for making it "all about him". It just shows the importance of Coaches leading the way to establish a winners culture. These situations must be created, they do no just happen!

The "Eye of the Tiger"

During my Football Coaching days for The Colorado College Tigers, I used this song during my motivational pre-game talks. I gave each of my players a Tigers Eye marble at the end of the speech to carry around with them to remind them to keep their "Eye of the Tiger" and keep their focus on and off the field.
