I’ve seen 6 football games, watched my son train these few months….
I’m gunna declare myself an expert at this point.
I’ve learned that men that coach all have a specific style.
There’s “Always Amped Up on Monster Energy Man (I assume it’s Monster.. could be anything with a stimulant) He’s always shouting, and when he chastises and praises it’s the same shouting tone.. So the players can’t really tell if they’re being yelled at or doing something right…
There’s super chill everything is going to be OK coaches. The ones who only yell to get your attention and usually stand back and impart their wisdom to the kids one on one.
There’s the bi-polar coaches. The ones that exude inspiration and energy.. until a kid does something wrong and then like a flip of the switch things get scary and loud real quick <~ these of all should not be teaching little kids.. and I’m REALLY glad this variety is not found in my son’s set of coaches…
One thing they have in common… it’s their LIFE. And you can see that energy being passed onto the kids..
They have this chant at the end… Witchy 101 would use this chant to show the power infused into basic words. Its incantation has put a spell on these boys… They actually LIKE getting hit and taken down in tackles. They LOVE the idea of getting the ball and therefore being the target of a bunch of kids wanting to cream you…
They willingly come back for more…..
My friends… I dare say I enrolled my son in a cult.
