A very wise coach.

I couldn't resist posting this sage advice taken from an interview with Bob Scott, my former coach at JHU.

E-Lacrosse: What advice would you give to a new coach?

Scott: Keep it simple in what you're doing. Every guy has to know what his responsibility is. In putting a team together, all ten guys out on the field have to know what they're doing and where they're supposed to be and all the fundamental things. The emphasis on the little things is important, because if you don't do the little things right, you'll end up in a pressure situation, messing up and not winning a ball game that maybe you're capable of winning. I would say the emphasis on fundamentals and on awareness of responsibilities and on carrying them out are the most important things.
