What's going on Wolfpack Nation?
Well we didn't play our best basketball (especially me) this weekend to say the least. So all I'm going to say about that is that we're looking forward to redeeming ourselves on Sunday up in Dublin.
Recently I've been in really close contact with my mother, father, and close friends, because like I said before, losing is the number one thing in the world that I hate with a passion.
Changing speeds (haha), I have been concentrating a lot on the coaching aspect of my trip lately. I am coaching two teams over here. The first is an Under 16 all girls club team. I love coaching them so much, because they are so enthusiastic and receptive, and just love playing the game. I feel as if this age group is the most important to young players, because this is the time in which the game tends to get a little more serious. These girls are very talented and I feel that we're going to win a lot of games this season. I'm excited if you can't tell (haha).
The other team I'm coaching is the Varsity team here at the local University. OBVIOUSLY, I am more than elated to be doing this because one day I hope to possibly become a head coach back home in the states, so this is a big task I am taking on here in preparation for my future. This is the best part about this whole experience, in my opinion, because I love the strategy involved in coaching. The evaluation of what your strengths and weaknesses are, pitted against your opponent’s strengths and weaknesses. There's nothing like it...
But I'll tell you about it more in detail when the respective seasons begin later this month. I have to run to training, so I'll be in touch. Hope you all have a great week and I'll be speaking to you soon.
