“My coaching philosophy is all about the process. Whether it is a practice, off-field activity, and/or game; I expect every player to be fully committed and bring 100% effort and focus in order to achieve excellence. Excellence doesnt happen overnight. It comes from hard work, consistency, the drive to be the best, and a passion for what you do.
