I had the pleasure of watching practice on Monday April 3rd. I was extremely impressed with the organization and the amount of details being coached across the board: offense, defense, and special teams. I spent most of the time concentrating on the defense.
Randy Shannon, the Defensive Coordinator, is an outstanding coach. He coached, corrected, praised, educated, and motivated on every play and drill. Energetic and enthusiastic, he and his entire staff paid close attention to the smallest details.
Coach Mac showed a side not often seen, with a fiery and passionate talk to the team on the field after practice. He wanted to make sure the players understood that just showing up on the practice field doesn’t mean you are progressing. You must put in the purpose-driven daily training to reach the full potential as an individual and as a team.
