What direction am I facing? You could be going really fast in the wrong direction.

John F. Kennedy once said that "Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction." When you think about it...finding the right direction is a skill that you want to be good at. I tell my football players all the time...making great first steps and adjusting along the way is something that I'm looking for in a player. I have seen too many players that are fast...but never seem to be around the ball when it counts. Speed matters...but not if you are going in the wrong direction. Make sure you are taking the right steps toward your goals...not just any steps.

Classroom Quote:

In Football and in Life you need to going in the right direction. Speed does not matter as much as direction. Direction is so much more important than speed
