In Reply to: The lack of not holding kids accountable is hurting the develop of CA players posted by Popscout on January 05, 2020 at 21:17:28:
: 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
I agree about the accountability. But its not limited to CA. There are plenty of places that hold kids accountable, but sadly its the exception not the rule in the modern day world. Very few adults left out there to lead our youth.
