Many of the first leadership lessons I learned came from playing quarterback for my high school football team. While reminiscing about the good ole days, I made a list full of gridiron grit. I hope you enjoy it and can even improve the list from your own experience in life and sports.

Gotta have a game plan

Practice the fundamentals

Practice as you will play

Passion, more than talent, might make the difference between winning and losing

Listen to your coach

In the huddle, call the play with confidence

Run the play!

Capitalize on turnovers

Seize the momentum

Move the chains forward

Football is a game of inches

Study your opponent’s strategies

Play hard all four quarters of the game

Treat your teammates with respect

Feed your offensive line all the red meat they want

Find the open receiver

Protect the football
