You Can Do More: Jeff Floyd 4/13
By Jeff Floyd former Truman High School Head Coach
Even though there is “officially” no football this time of year, it is always an exciting time for prep programs…
And… there are always questions to be answered.
While some programs are trying to make that turnaround to success, others are attempting that leap from pedestrian to elite, and a few are trying to figure out how to stay on top.
We have all heard the (overused) adage regarding the definition of insanity … “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”…. My question then is, what can you do differently… better… this off-season to get different… better results?
I know as teachers and coaches, we are always busy… but for most of us, we can catch our breath a little bit during the spring and summer (compared to in-season at least)
Here are some ideas …

I (or anyone else for that matter) do not have all the answers… but sometimes the questions are just as important… keep asking those questions!
You Can Do More… your brain is lying to you…. Don’t Believe It!
