What can your young athlete learn from Tim Tebow or Jeremy Lin?

Building strength from the inside out


As a coach that has dealt with thousands of young athletes it intrigues me that both these athletes have strong religious backgrounds. Is there a connection with how both were so prepared when their numbers were called to perform on the field or court?

There are so many factors involved for an athlete to earn a scholarship to college and that much more to become a Professional Athlete! The road to success is a delicate balance between genetics, living environment, work ethic and mental preparation.

Over time, I come to see that Work Ethic and Mental Preparation are huge difference makers! 

Now, this is not a referendum on Religion but more on having a Strong Moral Compass. The direction that our Youth receive on daily basis needs to be STRONGER. We as parents have a obligation to teach our children the virtues of hard work, respect for elders, education and a healthy lifestyle.

This speaks to building a STRONG FOUNDATION in order to Build Warriors. This person will be successful in athletics and more importantly LIFE.

Tim Tebow is also Dyslexic and an inspiration for those with LDs. The NC Patch recently wrote an article on my new book unREAL Education: Beyond Report Cards. It is a true story about my son, his struggles and ultimate success dealing with dyslexia and the school system.
