Link to the article, quote is at very end. This guy is so self inflating.
“I think part of the reason that you sent me these questions is because you want to get a better sense of what makes John so good. But you never asked that. First, John is good because he was born with some talent. You don't run 1:48 ever, much less as a 17 year old if you don't have some talent. But not everyone who can run 1:48, does. So the most important thing is that I'm his coach. Simple as that.”
Really???? It was a sarcastic comment....PERIOD!!
Also, having a coach in high school who you can trust and believe in is HUGE!!! There's a lot of talented young athletes who never reach their full potential because they haven't the confidence and or support of a good coach. Coaching isn't just about putting together workouts (you can find that all over the internet), it's equally if not more so about building a trusting relationship that not only develops an athlete but also a person who can go out into the world and make it a better place. We all should be applauding Coach Ozzie and the success of John Lester.
Look at the BIG PICTURE people!!!!
