I was at a game Friday when Grayson (14-1), the #1 team in the State of GA, took on Shiloh (15-0), the #3 ranked team. Per MaxPreps, Grayson is ranked #8 in the Nation and #10 on the Maxpreps Xcellent 25 Rank. Grayson has 3 D1 players who've signed. Caleb Murphy/South Florida, Deivon Smith/Miss.State, and Toneari Lane/Winthorp. But what amazed me was that whenever they (committed players) made a mistake like a charge or a really bad turnover that maybe changed the momentum of the game, their coach (Geoffery Pierce) would immediately take them out. I asked him after the game during the post-game presser his philosophy behind that and he talked about just sitting them down for a least a minute or so and making sure you hold all players accountable for their actions. He talked about using it as a learning tool and not punishing the kids. He would 99% of the time get them back in after a possession or two. At the end of the day, it's helping kids truly develop. In CA, if a coach tries to pull that off, the kid is transferring immediately. SMDH
