Triple Option Secrets Ch 2 of 5: The Day My Education Failed Me
How did I get here?
I sat in the middle of a full auditorium, feeling a little confused that after everything, and that it would all end here… like this.
I had been following the status quo, moving towards my one goal, and only to find out the whole thing was a lie…
I looked to my left… and I looked to my right… and I saw hundreds of kids waiting on some sort of miracle. And I knew I was letting them down. Only, THEY had smiles on their faces.
Didn’t they know what was about to happen?
I wasn’t going to coach anymore. I wasn’t going to be in these kids’ lives anymore. And like nearly 1/3 of all high school coaches out there, I was leaving them, too.
“You don’t have to win to be a good coach.” They told us.
“Having an ethical and upstanding team is our first priority.”
“Winning isn’t everything…”
When it all comes down to it, you have to win. In the “Real World,” it comes down to winning game after game because that’s what puts tails in seats (aka ticket sales), gets donations from wealthy “friends,” and makes the administration look good.
And as you know, it’s not a very nice or forgiving place.
For most coaches, IF they win the majority of the games, they get to keep their jobs next year.
BUT, 50% of teams lose.
The chain of debt from school, a job that has a high turnover, and pressure to do nothing but win (and make sure all the kids are A+ and the epitome of gentlemanliness) is what we each inherited when we stepped into this “Real World.”
So, when I look around at all these kids and teachers, and see them all smiling, I hurt…
But, not for me… for them…
Because let me tell you something, for me, I knew what my next step was. Just a few years before, I stumbled on a way to take things I was good at in my life, help more kids, and help more schools.
