Most of my life has been consumed by being an athlete but now I’ve been given the opportunity to teach other athletes this great game, as a college softball coach. On my journey, I’ve learned many things that can benefit ball players at any level. This series is just a few of the things that have helped me as an athlete and also as a coach.
Coaches Recruit Attitude
I was told this as a high school athlete many times. A coach will watch how an athlete warms up, what they do after they hit a homerun, or even how they interact with their teammates, both on and off the field. These are important things for a college coach to see. They’re not just building a team, but a unit. That won’t function well with selfish athletes.
If a coach sees that an athlete is arrogant or uncoachable, they can easily move on to the next one on their list.
