What do Successful Teams Have in Common?

Updated: May 19, 2022

Larry Brown the Hall of Fame basketball coach says that “All the successful teams I’ve ever seen have three characteristics: They play unselfish, they play together, and they play hard.”

Do those characteristics apply to our team here at Crater?

Unselfish. The members of the team put the priorities of the team above individual needs. There is no resentment because of prima donna behavior.

Together. Everyone does their job, and there is trust. Help is readily available when a teammate struggles. Cooperation is the norm. People don’t point fingers. They work to improve things.

Hard. The pace is good. Quick starts. High standards. No coasting. The team takes seriously achieving and maintaining a high standard.

I strongly believe we can do all three of these things in our program. If you are a player reading this please know that you can start this today! You can choose to be a role model. Be unselfish. Be the ideal teammate. Pour your energy and effort into your work.

I am looking forward to this season and helping each and every player become the best they can be.
