We RAP: Adapting to Challenges While Staying True to Core Values

Growing up as a little 5’1 basketball player from Pelham, NY, I was constantly faced with challenges. Over and over again, I was told I was too small to succeed in the women’s basketball world.  These comments served as incredible motivation and created what I call a healthy chip on my shoulder that stayed with Read more about We RAP: Adapting to Challenges While Staying True to Core Values[…]

I remember my first fall camp at Kansas, walking into the locker room after our first session of position meetings and everyone was carrying their giant 3-ring binder that contained a couple hundred pages of plays, notes and terminology for that season’s scheme. My locker was with all of the quarterbacks, and I specifically remember Read more about Technology is changing the way athletes learn[…]

A Mistake I’ll Never Make Again

I recently made a critical error in an approach to our communication in a game and it cut our production in half. Starting four freshmen resulted in losing three or four plays a game due to misalignments or assignment errors, which forced me to slow our tempo and try to manage the clock more.
