    Love the Coach’s plan to succeed, and to bring out the very best in everyone in the “MSUM football family”. It’s inspiring to hear a college head football coach talk about building better men for their future. In my opinion, listening to Coach on this pod cast, a player who plays for Coach and subscribes to THE DRAGON WAY, is extremely fortunate.
