Signing Day Wrap Up

February 5, 2009 press release:

I think it’s a solid class. It’s not a spectacular one, by any means, but one thing Tom O’Brien and recruiting coordinator Jerry Petercuskie have shown over the years is that they are very adept at finding skilled, hard-working kids that are “coachable.”

Petercuskie had a fantastic quote in this piece from Tim Stevens that stuck with me this week:

“We want to coach football, not coach effort.”

Exactly. Stars are great and indicative of tremendous potential, but O’Brien and company have done a fantastic job of looking past the stars and looking for work ethic.

Hard to believe that Spring Football is right around the corner.
