Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?
We are looking for committed guys that give relentless effort in the weight room, classroom, and in their work habits. Tough players mentally and physically, and leaders that live their life with integrity.
Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?
I’ve had several player players that entered as freshman and we never gave them a chance to play. By the end of their 4 years they were all conference or major contributors to our program. The guys that overachieve are the guys that are meticulous about what they do on an every day basis. The have a purpose for what they are doing; coachable, and are relentless in their pursuit to achieve the pinnacle of their ability.
