Page One Of A Season In THEIR Words


The following is Page One of our book A Season In THEIR Words. A follow-up to the bestseller A Season In Words, Dan Spainhour has followed the same format except for this time all of the quotes are from coaches! A terrific motivational tool for any coach at any level!

It has been said that teams are made during the season and players are made in the off-season. I have never liked the word off-season because it tends to send a message that when you are not in season you’re off. I have always preferred to call anytime out of season as the preseason. Sure, I encouraged my players to get away from the game some but I wanted them to think of any time out of season as a preparation for the following year. The following quotes are from coaches addressing “preseasons”.
_______________________________________________________________________________
You’re never going to be driven
anywhere worthwhile. But you sure
as hell can drive yourself to a lot of
great places.--Bob Knight

I don’t believe that God put us on
this earth to be ordinary.--Lou Holtz

I’ve learned that if you have a
chance you better take it. Life is too
precious. I always tell my players to
enjoy the now.--Gary Williams

Ability is a poor man's wealth.--John Wooden

Discipline yourself, so no one else
has to.--Pat Summitt

Nothing will work unless you do.--John Wooden

Work hard, stay focused and
surround yourself with good people.--Tom Osborne

If you are not willing to work hard
and establish discipline in your life,
then all your dreams are merely pipe
dreams.--Rick Pitino

It's not the push from behind or the
pull from in front—it's the drive from
inside.--Dale Brown

The masters all have the ability to
discipline themselves to eliminate
everything except what they are
trying to accomplish.--Dale Brown

I learned early that if I wanted to
achieve anything in life, I'd have to
do it myself. I learned that I had to be
accountable.--Lenny Wilkens

Their thoughts— Dave Hart in the November 2019 CLJ Issue


When people from within the athletics industry, including peers in athletics administration, coaches, television executives, NCAA staff, conference commissioners and post season football bowl directors, are asked to describe Dave Hart in one word, there is commonality in their responses. The words that are most used to best embody his sphere of influence nationally during his decorated career of nearly 35 years in college athletics administration are: Leader, Class, Core Values, Respect, Presence and Visionary.

As a former student-athlete, coach and athletics director, he has seen the industry evolve from all three perspectives. Dave served in a leadership position within the athletics department of four major universities: East Carolina University, Director of Athletics; Florida State University, Director of Athletics; University of Alabama, Executive Director of Athletics; and most recently as the University of Tennessee, Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics. Dave is currently the Founder and President of Athletics Legacy Partners where he focuses on helping others in the world of collegiate athletics develop student-athlete centered programs.

Along with Dave, you will also find much more in the November 2019 issue of The Coaching and Leadership Journal including:

  • George Eliot’s life lessons 
  • Learning from millionaire leaders
  • A fundamental skill for all leaders
  • Do. Or do not. There is no try
  • It’s time to get positive when adversity strikes
  • Jim Rohn’s top 7 books
  • Learning from the Varsity Blues scandal
  • Thanksgiving teamwork
  • Are you wasting your life?
