I think a lot of people can relate to the early morning/late night routine of getting ready for work or winding down the day by turning on a show like Sportscenter or a college network show. Even if its for a few minutes as a familiar backdrop to your routine, you can relate to “catching up” on what you might have missed in the world of sports. (more…)

Ep. 7: Sam Mora, Jr., Quarterback Developer/Coach

BoS-Logo-iTunes

In football, the most important position on and off the field is quarterback. The quarterback sets the tone for the team, and is the guy everyone on the team looks to as the example. Private quarterback development is a field that has taken off the last few years and one of the best in the business is Sam Mora, Jr. He has learned from some of the best coaches in football, and has since branched off to start his own company; working with dozens of the best High School and College players in the country. He’s helped train and develop players such as  Jameis Winston, Bryce Petty, Connor Cook, and Johnny Manziel, just to name a few.
But, most importantly, he’ll tell you he’s a developer of young men. Helping them to realize the key to reaching their goals and full potential is by applying systems and a regimen that emphasizes improvement beyond what’s scheduled. By doing this, he’s also helping to develop a more well-rounded individual through lessons from the sport they love. Something that I feel is just as important as anything a player accomplishes on the playing field.
Today’s podcast explores his role in the development of players at this pivotal position and how he mentors a players transition from High School to College to possibly the NFL (5:00). I ask him what he thinks the difficult part of the transition is from the players perspective (10:00), the economics of hiring a personal coach (17:00), why so many players have a hard time transitioning from college to the NFL (20:00), the perception of the black quarterback (27:00), player safety, and much more.
