: : : : According to Jack Pollon Crespi's Billy Reed is transferring. I don't know how good of a player he is. But Crespi has had a lot of kids transfer out. Why is Crespi losing so many players?
: : : I donít know why they are leaving Crespi. I donít know the coach personally. I donít know any of the players. What I do know (as an observer) he is a GREAT coach. It takes special players and parents to play for great coaches. Great coaches are great because they have standards and they hold their players to that standard:
: : : Today everyone wants an AAU coach that promises scholarships that he canít really deliver. They promise positions that the kid really canít play. They promise everything but skills, hard work and teamwork. Itís a shame!
: : : Itís ok. Just look at Bosco. That coach let all of his superstars go then beat MD. Let all of his superstars go, then his coachable players got scholarships. Meanwhile, those kids that left are still searching.
: : : Crespi will be alright
: : :They are good !
: I don't know any kids at Crespi, and haven't for a few years. So I can only speak in the general.
: However, I do know that Coach White demands a level of hard work and accountability that few do.
: In the past, kids would grind it out, and come out better players, students, and people on the other side when they graduate.
: Now, in the new world of everyone gets a trophy (or thinks they are getting a scholarship), as soon as things aren't going little Johnny's way, he leaves.
: And this isn't true just at Crespi. As soon as a player isn't starting at a school, even if they shouldn't, they just go somewhere else. Good luck to all those kids when they get into the working world and don't get the big project or promotion and just start job hopping.
love the analysis that kids are leaving because they want it easy somewhere else. thank goodness for those coaches who will not bend to cater to young entitlement and the egos of their parents. kids who stick it out will be better people for it...
