I am on your side on this. It all starts with the whole attitude towards the program and the sport of football itself. Starting with the parents and then the middle school, boosters, coaches and teachers. You and I were both involved in a group of young boys who played baseball almost year round since they were 5. They ended up being the only North Iredell baseball team to make the playoffs in years and the team has been terrible since. As a parent of this group we devoted most of our free lives to youth baseball for about 12 years. Winning takes commitment from the junior leagues all the way thru middle school. I do not believe its the coaches fault its only current staff's second year. Little Johnny has to be taught he is a winner from 1st grade on, so as little Johnny enters older grades he expects to win. Stickwolf, your softball teams won because since they were 5 they were coached and told and expected to win. Bottom line is I believe it starts with whats expected from an athlete at an early age. I'm not a great writer but hopefully yall understand what I'm trying to say. Expectations are everything!
