Proverbs 14:28
A person of great understanding is patient,
but a short temper is the height of stupidity.

Every Friday nights before  games, I read scripture from the bible.  The Bible has the power to eliminate doubt, and create humility. We need both to play well.   I give them perspective and context from the scripture to encourage  inspire, and to remind them of Gods word is in everything we do. Proverbs : Helps me support some of the core themes of life and football. I want to give them perspective and context from the scripture to encourage  inspire, and to remind them, Gods word is in everything we do. .

2013  Georgetown VS. Wagner  Score

A rematch from 2012;  resulted in a 10-13 Loss.  A late flag while punting the ball, put Georgetown in field goal range.   With 1:42 on the clock the field goal kicker punched it through the up rights for the victory.  That was a Defense who graduated 27 seniors.   2013’s Defense replaces those seniors with 15 new faces.  

2013

Georgetown vs. Wagner (W) 28-21 

Minuets away from our season opener vs Georgetown, the one glaring fact was that we were inexperienced on defense.  However, inexperience doesn’t mean you can’t be successful.  2 words come to the surface when I access our inexperience : Effort & Attitude.  Regardless of talent or experience, you give yourself an opportunity to be successful, if you give great Effort & Attitude.  

                         Proverbs 14:28 – A person of great understanding is patient, but a short temper is the height of stupidity.

The first half, Georgetown had at total yards of 250 to 110 yards with the score 21-7.  My half time speech was to remind them of who they are and what 2 things to play with.

“Effort & Attitude! If you understand that about each other you can be patient mentally and make the play you have to make.  If you doubt, you’re doubting your Effort & Attitude, therefore you’ll be short tempered and allow the emotions of the game to prevent you from coming back. “ 

Second half we played inspired on defense, getting Georgetown out of rhythm;  limiting to just 33 yards of offense and two first downs over the game’s final 30 minutes.  The Defense started to play with an energy that resulted in 2 turnovers, a fumble and interception, which was returned for a Defensive Touchdown.  The players’ belief in each other during adversity was more important than the victory.  To have faith in men, you must have faith in GOD.
