objection counselor ...

Comment 21 Aug 2015

wow... kick your dog yet this morning?  Why do you have to be such a prick.. just curious?  I've never down voted anyone in here; however you are making it very inviting..  might want to check your ego at the door, cause it ain't fitting through it.  Learn to make your points and argument without sounding childish and everyone will take you more seriously. 

Both QBs will play IMO.

Go Bucks.

best blitzing LB in college football

Comment 06 Aug 2015

Actually, coach Fickell was the one coach that evaluated and spotted D. Lee as a potential LB recruit - even though he was the high school QB.  Coach Fick did wonders with the LB corps and getting these young guys ready to play.  I understand your point about Lee; however Luke was never in danger of losing his job.

we do much of what you are discussing, it's a passion for me.  I own my own business so I can focus on the coaching now, and love it.  Where do you coach soccer?

I played my entire life former pro, now in my 40s, have coached youth soccer for 3 years now.. took classes and course work received my "E" license last summer, going for "D" soon.  I love coaching, giving back, changed me for the better.. doesn't hurt I have two young boys I also coach, but honestly, I love to see all my kids improve, get better, more confident.. it's awesome.  I'm very good with kids this age, build relationships from the start, get to know them, and their strengths and weaknesses on the pitch.  Just always remember, at this age, play kids at all positions - even though "personalities" begin to develop at this age (ie: attacking forwards, defensive minded kids, midfield warriors with motors that dont stop) it's important kids get equal time at all facets of the game.  Around 8 you can introduce team ball movement, which involves spacing, understanding, and team passing.

One of my best coaches who play pro and still coaches professionally, reached out and said something I 100% agree with..  from 3-8 teach them to LOVE the game... from 9-14 teach them HOW TO PLAY the game... from 15-20 teach them how to WIN the game! 

Keep it fun.  Email me for ideas if you get stuck.  A big part of coaching is coming up with drills that are fun, important, and have more than 1 line!  Kids will play around and not pay attention if you don't have 2 or more lines - thus why my practices, even at that age level, are always 'competitive'.. we pick teams at beginning of practice, choose captains, let them pick team names, and drills are competitive, reward with points, or junmping jacks for losing team - never make anyone "sit out" for any reason.  Be yourself, be positive, you are a huge influence in these young people's lives... Opps I did it again.. I find myself talking like Tress around parents... "young people"..  Another thing, get an assistant coach to help keep drills moving and always finish practice with a scrimage situation.  When in doubt.. let the kids play.  Good luck!  Coaches and teachers top shelf material - have fun!

Prayers for the family and friends of this young man, and the University of Michigan.  Horrible news.  As a father of two young boys, I always feel saddened to read these stories... then compelled to share these stories as a learning lesson.  I'm sure I'm not the first father to say this phrase, but... "when you drink - you don't think"  is the motto I will try my best to teach my boys.  Tragic story, RIP young man, and Buckeye prayers to your family tonight.
