A Lesson For All College Freshmen
“Grant is the beneficiary of learning from some of the mistakes I made with Sean [McGorty]. The thing with Grant that’s so unique is he’s the rare freshman who’s not trying to prove something every day. That’s where most freshmen get in trouble. And, I think Sean would be the first to admit that he was in that boat once, trying to bring it every day, and he was so tired by November.”
“I really credit Grant’s high school coach, who said before he got here, ‘Don’t ever lead a workout as a freshman. Practice being in the back.’ We’re telling him the same thing. He knew, I don’t have to prove something in practice every day. That’s why he was able to run so great in November. He let himself come along gradually, be patient, and trust in us and in the process.”
