Bunch of tough guys!? You look like a bunch of fifth grade sissies after a cat fight. You got anger, that’s good. You’re gonna need it son. You got aggression? That’s even better, you’re gonna need that too. But any little two year old child can throw a fit. Football is about controlling that anger! Harnessing that aggression into a team effort to achieve perfection. Coaches will cut a player if they think he’s not up to snub. If they think he’s hurtin’ the team. This is a public school program, I will never ever cut a player who comes out to play for me but when you put that uniform on, that Titan uniform, you better come to work. We will be perfect in every aspect of the game. You drop a pass, you run a mile. You miss a block on the side, you run a mile. You fumble the football, and I will break my foot off in your John Brown hind parts… and then you will run a mile. Perfection!
Let’s go to work!
