Alarm just went off! It is time to put in a little work before I relax on football Sunday. I have been working with this young man since he was about 8 years old. He couldn’t catch a fly ball and could barely make contact. He has a ways to go but he is progressing for sure!

Now he’s a freshman in high school and working to make a team.

Today’s plan: discuss his recent approach in games/practice, coming through ground balls at first, driving the ball the other way, and keeping the weight back on off speed.

Player development takes years…keep your mental toughness. Once that goes it takes years to get it back. Often time it’ll be too late.
