Welcome back, Coach. Just a heads up, we’ll be hosting Saguaro High (Ariz.) head coach Jason Mohns on the podcast tomorrow. He’s going to talk about team building and how his program won state championships in 1995, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Here’s some fun stuff from the Twitterverse.
Our friends at the Hispanic Texas High School Football Coaches Association have a great message that athletic directors should keep in mind.
If I’m hiring a coach, I’m hiring a culture builder. Every coach will know the game but can they connect, communicate a clear vision, hire/recruit/develop people well, multiply their leadership?
Coaching is about X’s and O’s.
Leadership is about CULTURE.

Coach Matsumoto weighs in on what to do if kids are struggling with remote learning.
Parents, it’s 2020. You can check your kid’s grades online. Do it daily, if not, weekly
If grades aren’t right, take their tv cord, Xbox cord, & phone to your work. Why do they get to be in drivers ed?
Once grades go up, slowly start giving things back/reward them.

Coach Sandlin encourages players to stay in the moment. No future in football is promised.
RECRUITs: Less than 7% of high school athletes make it to the next level. When you receive ANY opportunity to play at the next level consider it a BLESSING!#Recruiting101
