We came across this great article last fall from USA Football. We especially like what Nebraska head coach, Matt Rhule, said about youth football coaches in an interview with the organization,
“Youth football head coaches have to remember that they’re the ones who will determine whether a young person loves playing or not. Having a great coach who teaches you to love the game and love to practice, that’s what will keep people involved. If they get to me in college, that means they had a great high school coach, which means that they had a great junior high coach and a great youth coach. Coaches make players fall in love with the game.”
