1. Faith 2. Family 3. Academics 4. Football These are the priorities of a Jenks HS athlete. And putting these into practice is paying off to the tune of 17 Oklahoma State Championships! So our ears are up to see what we can learn. In this episode, Coach Keith Riggs talks about the importance of building men and the job satisfaction that gives him. …
 
Before there is trust, effort, and a run-through-a-brick-wall-for-you commitment, there is LOVE. This episode with Devon Mann, Head Football Coach and A.D. at Santo ISD, hinges upon love. Not a Valentines Day feels love, but a Day One, Unconditional Choice to love and want the best for your athletes. From there, we range widely, hearing about keys …
 
"When I was growing up, we just did whatever coach told us to do. Today, that's not enough. You've got to model it." In this episode, we speak to A.D. and football coach, Chad Olson out west in Pecos, TX about his program's core values of Effort, Attitude, Guts, Love, Energy, and Sacrifice... E.A.G.L.E.S. We focus in on SACRIFICE, and how the same …
 
When you try to do someone else's job, you fail at their job AND you fail at your own. In this weight room talk, Mackey reminds us that while we can't do EVERYTHING, we can remain laser-focused on what is ours to accomplish today, on YOUR JOB. - Deal in the truth, not in fantasy - Embrace the obstacles along the way. They are mean to make you stron…
 
When you are about to speed up, you'd better know you're headed in the right direction. That's why the first week of Boot Camp at Anderson-Shiro happens in the classroom. Bradley Hodges, Head Football Coach and Athletic Director talks to us about slowing down at transition points in the year to ask, "What is best for THIS group, at THIS moment? Wha…
 
"School Pride" is a term often thrown around, but what does that mean? What does that look like in action and how do we as coaches build it? In this episode with Coach Eli Brown, we hear of the STORIED Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma. And by storied, we mean 42 State Championships and 5 National Championships in 100 years of Boy…
 
Any athletic program needs a solid foundation in relationships. Relationships between athletes and coaches, as well as between the school and the community. Relationships are about getting to know each other and spending time together. Relationships are about caring for each other beyond what we can get out of the other person. In this episode, Coa…
 
Relationships are built on trust. If our athletes don't trust us, then we won't be able to build strong relationships with them. Without strong relationships, we can't help them become the best young men and women they can be. We can't just tell our athletes that they can trust us because trust is built slowly over time by both our words and our ac…
 
Being a coach isn't about you. It's not about your success; it's about the students' success. How our your athletes successful? How are you helping them to be ever more successful? Ensuring the success of others is what coaching is all about. In this episode, Coach Seth Stinton reminds us that coaching is never about us. Instead, it's about the kid…
 
This week, Mackey talks with retiring US Army Lieutenant Colonel Ingebrigt A.L. “Andy” Riise. Andy is a Mental Performance Coach, Consultant, Speaker, and Author who passionate is helping individuals, leaders, and teams get better at what they do. A West Point graduate and former Army Football player, he had a decorated 20 year career, leading sold…
 
Most students dislike tests. But tests are valuable and even necessary because they allow us to see where we stand. When we know where we are, then we can figure out how to get where we want to be. In this episode, Mackey explains the value of testing our athletes so they (and we) know where they are--not to judge or label, but to help them move fo…
 
Does winning in sports really matter? Yes, it does. But perhaps not for the reasons that we immediately think of. The value of winning isn't in beating another person, and it's not in the accolades that come from a win. The true value of winning is in how it pushes us to prepare and compete to our greatest ability. In this way, winning in sports te…
 
The main reason given for not establishing character development as a routine part of an athletic program is lack of time. But here's the truth about time: We make time for what we value. If we "don't have time" for character development, it's because we don't value it enough. In this episode, Mackey explains that we have to take control of making …
 
The most dangerous racism is implicit racism, the kind that we think we've already dealt with when we haven't. We can't fight racism like this in the world until we deal with that racism in ourselves. That means we have to call right, right and wrong, wrong. We've got to prepare to face racism, to protect each other from its effects, to protest unt…
 
Coaches are important figures in the lives of young adults everywhere. To be a great coach requires passion. It requires an eagerness for more truth, more knowledge, and ever greater improvement. Being a coach is a tough but rewarding job, and we could all use additional resources to help us become the best coaches that we can be. In this episode, …
 
You don't have to get sick to be affected by the pandemic. Everyone is experiencing loss due to COVID-19, whether that's loss of a season, loss of experiences, or loss of loved ones. Going through this difficult time is naturally going to bring up a lot of emotions, and it's not uncommon to feel like you're on an emotional roller coaster. In this e…
 
Starting in a new career is tough. Whether you've been in the job market for a while before taking up coaching or whether coaching is your first job, there's a lot to learn. But perhaps the most important lesson is: Never stop learning. There's a lot of good stuff in this episode for all coaches, but especially for beginners, so don't forget to tak…
 
Bad days happen to everyone. But not everyone has the character and preparation to respond to bad days in a way that turns those bad days to growth. The good news is that everyone can develop the character and learn how to prepare to do this. There is nothing wrong with having bad days; they are just part of being human. But if you can turn those b…
 
We tend to think of the expectations we set for our athletes as minimums, but in reality, those expectations are generally ceilings. In other words, coaches and athletes are going to rise to the expectations that are set, and go no farther unless we adjust the expectations to a higher standard each time they reach it. In this episode, Coach Tony Da…
 
Success isn't final, and failure isn't fatal. Success will always be interrupted by failure at some point, and failure is necessary for finding success. You can't have one without the other because failure and success go hand in hand. It is only through failure that we learn and grow in the ways necessary for us to find success. In this episode, Co…
 
Culture is crucial to success. It's true in business, it's true in the family, and it's definitely true in the locker room. Culture is the soundbite encapsulating what the athletic program or team is really like to be a part of. It's what athletes say about their team to their non-athletic friends or their family. In this episode, we talk with Coac…
 
Servant leadership means serving first. A servant leader understands that he or she must serve others to find success in life. A servant leader also becomes closer to his or her team through their service to their teammates and the wider community. When a team serves together, it brings them closer together. In this episode, Coach Tony Benedetto gi…
 
Sports teach us many lessons that will be useful for the rest of our lives. We are trying to reach students through athletics to teach them the skills and values that will help them find success beyond the game. Sports people have a lot of wisdom to share from their time on the field or court. So in this episode, we are speaking with Jeff Traylor, …
 
Life is not all about sports, but sports is all about life. The things that our student-athletes learn in practice and during games will help them well beyond the field, so long as we are intentional about passing on the most important lessons. For example, one of the core values we can teach our athletes is that regardless of what life throws at u…
 
We have an influence on our student-athletes' lives. Our words to them matter, so we have to be careful what we say to these young people. They are dealing with middle and high school, the two places where everyone's self-identity is tested over and over again. Our athletes will become what they think they are, so we have to be sure that our words …
 
There are a lot of reasons for finishing strong, such as showing your integrity by finishing through instead of at the line and pushing yourself to your limits so you can reach your goals. But perhaps one of the most important reasons to finish strong is this: Your finish line today will be your starting line tomorrow. In this episode, Mackey expla…
 
Most young people look at respect as something you earn, not something that is given to you. But this thinking is completely backward. We should respect others because of who WE are, not who they are. Respect is at the core of creating a team and school culture where it's not only okay, but expected that student-athletes will stand up and say "this…
 
Ownership is one of the keys to making sure our athletes stay in the game. In other words, if we want to keep them from quitting, and if we want them to play to their highest level, we've got to help them feel that they have a stake in our athletic program. When our athletes have ownership, they have passion, and with that passion, they will find s…
 
Your health limits how far you can go in life. When you're in poor health, it limits what you can do and the impact that you can have on others. That's not to say that illness or obesity will always prevent people from reaching their dreams or influencing their community. But it is true that the healthier you are, the further and faster you can go.…
 
Anger is a powerful emotion. It can destroy so quickly and so completely. And sometimes, what it destroys cannot be rebuilt. Anger can destroy relationships and entire lives. But the thing is, anger is also useful if it's used in the right way. When the destructive nature of anger is kept in check, it can be used for positive change. Angry indignat…
 
The team belongs to the athletes as much as it does to the coaches, and the team is bigger than athletes or coaches. Everyone is working together in service of the team. And if there are people who aren't working in service to the team, people who aren't fulfilling their roles, then the team breaks down. But if everyone has a We over Me mentality, …
 
The only way to finish strong is to give your best to the cause or goal straight through (not to) the finish line. There will be real consequences for our world if this generation of coaches fails to finish strong. You are that generation, and you have a great responsibility to your athletes, your family, and future generations to prepare the leade…
 
Having a 5-star talent is not as important as having a 5-star character. Talent cannot take you very far without a solid foundation of good character. Talent can also only take you as far as your character will allow. So in that sense, character is both a foundation and ceiling. This is just one of the things that makes character so important in ou…
 
Culture is a mindset. When your mindset is that your team's culture matters and the values you talk about settle into your daily mindset as guiding principles, that mindset, that culture, becomes evident to your athletes so that they can share in it. When athletes see that the athletic program is important to their coaches, the program will become …
 
Systemic racism is a topic too big for any one person to tackle. That's why a movement grew on social networking sites and turned into protests in the streets. The movement is people, black and white and everything in between, coming together to say "This is wrong and I will not remain silent." In this episode, Mackey addresses current events relat…
 
Thomas Edison is credited with saying some version of the quote: "Opportunity is missed my most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like hard work." In this episode, Mackey encourages us to look past the overalls to the opportunity underneath. Yes, there will be hard work involved. But if we do today's work today, we will reap the be…
 
Our athletic programs aren't just here to let kids run around with a ball. The program exists to make our student-athletes better, to help them become the men and women who will lead our society in the future. That's why we can't just talk about our values and personal codes, we have to actually live it out so our athletes can see it clearly. In th…
 
We tend to think that if we practice long enough, hard enough, the thing we're doing will be easy. But the truth is, things don't get easier, we just get stronger. And the only way to get stronger is to fail. That's right. It is not our successes that help us improve so that the hard things seem easy, it is our failures that propel us to that place…
 
Often we view complaints as negatives. After all, complaints tell us what is wrong with the world, and who wants to be reminded of that? But this thinking is backwards. Complaints don't just tell us what's wrong. Complaints offer an invitation to make wrong things right. In this episode, Mackey reminds us that life is based on how we see things and…
 
Discipline and accountability go hand in hand. We must hold our athletes accountable for their actions both when they are with us and when they are away. Our athletes represent our athletic program, which is essentially our brand. They are representing us when they are in other teachers' classes and when they are out with their friends. We hold the…
 
We all need a little encouragement from time to time--encouragement to look out for our FAMILY, encouragement to help us through tough situations, and encouragement to remind us of what's most important in life. In this episode, Mackey serves up these three types of encouragement. He reminds us that every member of your family (whether that's blood…
 
Adversity reveals a lot about us. It reveals the level of our integrity, our humility, and our toughness. During times of adversity, business is not as usual. That's why we are called to show either the best of us or the worst of us, depending on if we default to serving others or serving ourselves. In this episode, Mackey discusses how adversity e…
 
One of the greatest gifts we can give our athletes is helping them understand that they are playing for family. When they see their teammates as brothers and sisters, there is no limit to what they will do for each other. The greatest edge you can give your athletic program is a culture founded on family. In this episode, Coach Jeremy Reed discusse…
 
We spend a lot of time thinking about being champions on the field, but what about being champions in the home? How do we become championship fathers? How do we teach the boys in our athletic programs and under our roofs to be championship fathers when they grow up? In this episode, author, mentor, and friend, Carey Casey tells us that being a cham…
 
Every person you meet is in one of three places: -Having a bad time -About to have a bad time -Recovering from a bad time It is guaranteed that you will have bad days and rough times. There may even be days when you struggle to get out of bed. Those rough times and the struggles you face can either anchor you down or be the catalyst that propels yo…
 
Adversity is something we're teaching our athletes to deal with every day on the field. The goal is to prepare them for when unexpected adversity strikes outside of athletics. We are all dealing with an adverse season right now. We can either rail against it, or put into practice what we've been trying to teach our athletes all this time: Adversity…
 
Love is not weakness. Love is strength. Love makes you willing to die to self for your teammates. It makes you willing to serve them. Without love, there's no service, no selflessness, and no sacrifice As we've said many times before, sacrifice is required to find success. When you love your team and your teammates, you will sacrifice for them, and…
 
“Because I said so” isn’t just a statement of authority. It’s also a statement of dependability: Because I said so, it will be done. Dependability is all about doing what you say you are going to do. Dependability will always beat ability because no matter how much talent you have, it’s worthless if you can’t be depended upon to do what you said yo…
 
Celebration is contagious. When we see someone smile or laugh, we want to smile and laugh with them. Complaining is also contagious, though. When we hear someone complain about the weather, it makes us realize it's too hot, too muggy, or too something when moments before we were enjoying a beautiful day. When we hear someone complain about a situat…
