The most important play…

August 14, 2012

With the new school year and football season around the corner, I have been thinking about a saying that I learned from longtime Saline teacher and coach – Jack Crabtree.  He used to tell us the most important play in any football game is always the next one.  No matter what happened on the last one – it’s always the next one that matters.  If it was a good play, try to replicate it.  If it was a bad play, learn from it and improve. Of course, this is easier said than done.  We tend to want to focus on the past.. the what if… agonizing over a poor performance or celebrating a success.

As the new school year begins, this saying reminds me to focus on the moment.  In a few short weeks over 5,200 students will walk through our doors and they deserve our whole-hearted focus.

The most important school year in any district is always the next one.
