Great talk Mark,
Oh, dear. Three back surgeries, and a shoulder reconstruction- and how does that help in recruiting? However, the love of the game, and the life lessons, well, I am so glad you both hammered home the point that you have to be good at what you do, and sell yourself. Trust does not develop in a vacuum. I also liked what he said about complex plays and "hybrid" positions. It is amazing how specific they have gotten: "...he is in that 215 to 220 range..." Oh my Gosh. Five pounds (and I am assuming that is all muscle) can determine position? Wow. I grew up in Big Ten Country (Ohio State) although I always thought of Indiana for Basketball with good old Bobby Knight. I think mark took much teasing (since he didn't get harrassed-lol) Lots of football in that talk. Smiles, Kevin
