Psycho Head-Doctor Working with the Backline

Well yesterday was an interesting practice...Coach Matt Miller, Alum from the 1990's, and current director of Health and Wellness at Grace College, worked with our defenders on our ability to gain an edge on the opponent.  Some would call these techniques "gamesmanship".  The techniques work on immature and undisciplined players and teams - and for a while, they worked on our offense.

Matt is a liscenced clinical psychologist, trained at Michigan State University, and from there went into the Airforce - training fighter pilots to adapt to adverse circumstances, say for instance losing engines on a $113,000,000.00 F-35 Joint Strike Fighter while screaming towards the dirt. 

We take the field again today at 3:45pm for another session...our goal is to "Play In The Future"...i'll explain that a bit more in a future post.

  1. For the record, the offense NEVER meaningfully cracked Grace's back line last night, while having numbers within the drill. If you come into Grace's back line, you're going to feel and hear the contact!
