Learning From the Greats — John McDonnell

“It’s important to not just physically prepare athletes, but have them in the right psychological state of mind as well.” 

— John McDonnell 

The greatest knew that it wasn’t just training them physically. All of us who coach have worked with those athletes who had the talent, skill, athleticism, etc., but they could not perform because they were defeated by a weak mind and spirit.

They’ve got to be prepared mentally as much as they are physically.
