A Strong Anecdote

First, if you haven't already done so, go here, and read C.L.'s latest piece on Greg Scruggs.

Done? Ok, good. Now, did that little anecdote about the anonymous player survey jump out to anyone else? Just when I think I can't admire Coach Strong and his staff any more, they come up with more innovative ways to motivate and instill discipline in our Cardinals.

Conducting an anonymous player survey asking each guy to list "the top five players on the team and five players who needed to work harder" seems like such a fantastic idea, and one that I haven't heard of before. It lets the slackers know that their lack of commitment has been noticed by their peers, and that there are no excuses, while simultaneously rewarding the guys who are clearly fully committed to what HCCS is selling.

I couldn't be more excited for the guy, but I was shocked to read that Chichester was listed as the #1 player according to his peers, especially since earlier in his career he seemed to lack focus and commitment. Props to him for stepping up and accepting accountability.

This has been said numerous times before, but the bottom line is that we currently have a coaching staff that understands that young adults actually crave discipline and accountability, and more often than not, these young men will step up to the challenge when the bar is set high by role models who they respect.

Go Cards.
