MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY!

“Play every game like it’s your last!” Coach Shipley told the team at halftime. Though he’s not the first coach to say that, it impacted me when he did. Those words are still with me today as COVID-19 has changed the daily routine. Attitude and effort is what we control, and each day we need to “bring It” and set a tempo! Today we ask you, what’s the best advice a coach or teacher ever gave you? Comment on this post the school and coach/teacher advice, let’s set the tempo today!
