Crushed Dreams

We are now deep into NFL training camps, and exhibition games have begun. Between the heat, the physical strain, the classroom work, and the pressure to perform, this is a pretty harsh time.

Making A Comeback

Athletes strive for excellence, often wanting to reap the harvest of achievement awards given for outstanding performance.

Back To Work

NFL training camps open this week (for some teams, rookies have already reported), and these weeks of workouts in the summer heat will prepare players and teams for the heat of battle in the season to come.

Giving Our Best Effort

Measuring success in sports is often directly related to effort. This was certainly true of former NFL wide receiver Jerry Rice. In spite of what were considered relatively slow times in the 40 yard dash coming out of Mississippi Valley State, Rice’s work ethic showed his commitment to getting the absolute maximum out of his ability. His offseason workout regimens…

Balancing Life’s Responsibilities

One of the most difficult things in sports is multi-tasking. We see it in the NFL at a management level when head coaches try to also carry on as general managers—a strategy that usually ends badly. We also see it in the NFL when head coaches try to  function as coordinators, calling the plays for either the offense or defense…

Setting Priorities – First Things First Podcast

As baseball season progresses this summer, every one of the 750 Major League players will have to re-evaluate whether baseball is their top priority.

A Test In The Desert

During last night’s Super Bowl, the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks faced off for a titanic test in the deserts of Arizona.

The Danger of Over-Confidence

On January 12, 1969, the New York Jets and the Baltimore Colts met in Miami for Super Bowl III, and it was expected to be pretty ugly.
