Its been a privilege to utilize the players. At times, in high-pressure environments, as a mentor and a coach you hold a position.
You end up sharing a few really intimate moments – more than a beer in the dressing room, working together collectively in the baits, or listening to a personal difficulty and helping them work through this – and its a privilege to be able to contribute and affect these young men lives.
