Athletic success is not built overnight. There are ten philosophies to a championship that Coach Fore has summarized in this book. From months of correspondence with the best and brightest coaches in the nation, ten key philosophies emerged that form the backbone of championship programs. These ten philosophies serve as the Leadership Lessons from some of the most highly regarded football coaches in the nation.
The purpose of this book is to give a blueprint to every coach, athlete, parent or businessperson who desires the absolute best for his or her team or organization. Coaches from Maine to California, from the heartland to the suburbs, all share how they became the best of the best. Read in their own words what propelled them to victory.
- What did they do differently from other programs in their league and their state?
- What piece of advice would they share with a coach who wants to win a state championship?
- What do these coaches consider to be the one most important aspect of their Championship program? How were they able to develop this with their team?
The answers to these questions serve as the foundation for Leadership Lessons. Read to find out how these teams incorporated these ten philosophies into their programs, and helped them to win the most coveted trophy in their state! By implementing the philosophies these coaches used to take their teams to the top, next season it could be your program that feels the exhilaration of lifting that ever-elusive championship trophy!
HOW AND WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK
A great book called The Fighter’s Mind by Sam Shepherd served as the basis for this book idea. In The Fighter’s Mind, Shepherd spends time with many of the best MMA and boxing trainers and fighters to understand the hows and whys of what they do. What really makes them tick? He literally spent time in their homes, their gyms, their offices, etc.
I kept thinking as I was reading this book, “this would be a great thing to do with high school coaches.” If only I had unlimited funds right?! My wife doesn’t want me leaving her at home with our three kids as I wander around the nation talking to football coaches. In January of 2012 I came across a list of the 2011 State Champions on Maxpreps. That was it! I would contact these State Champion coaches by phone and email, instead of driving all over the nation to spend time with them. There were more than 300 “State Champions” on the list. California, where I live, has 4 State Champions total. But some states have as many as 18 State Champions. That is how my journey began. My journey across the nation from my desk at home, striving to learn how the best of the best did it: picking the brains of State Championship coaches who raised the trophy at the end of last season!
