Calling the offense or defense during a game requires some strategy, planning, and players to be successful. We all know the saying “Its not about the X’s and the O’s, its about the Jimmies and the Joes,” but I believe its a combination of those things. If coaching the game didn’t take some planning and thought during the week and over the course of the game, then we wouldn’t spend as much time as we do preparing ourselves and our players.
Coaches are in the business of helping athletes become the person they want to be. This includes helping the athlete accomplish dreams of playing in college. Coaches need to have a good understanding of the recruiting process to help their athletes make the best possible decision for their future.
One play does not solely determine the outcome of a game, but it can make a huge difference for the team that does. How we prepare our teams and athletes to make and respond to these plays impacts the game just as much. Preparation is the key. Luck doesn’t win games, teams and athletes that are prepared will be successful every time.
