You need to keep sold and re-recruit the kids you want to keep every year. Kids that are just taking up space, not so muchIn this day and age is that still possible? Kids are bailing left and right if they aren’t playing as much as they think, or sometimes even when they are. Being a developmental program is going to be harder than ever in this climate. What little old me would do is possibly sacrifice a little bit of talent and recruit kids with high character and put a focus on building a culture where kids don’t want to leave. I think what hurt this years team the most is there wasn’t that leader on offense. With a new kid leaving every week it kind of struck me that this team wasn’t bought all in for the betterment of the program, but more looking out for themselves. Just my opinion.
