What It Takes To Win
Every Sunday, as a team, you review the film and go over how well you played the day before. One of the things that the team puts together at the beginning of the year is a large board that keeps track of what it takes to win each game (set up like the picture above). Chances are, if you win more of these categories than you lose, you ultimately win the game. It also allows you to see trends of where you are excelling vs. places you need to work on.
This weekly article will go in to detail about how we played that week in correspondence with what we at BBN Chalk Talk have put together as the categories and areas that will make the Cats most successful. If you win, you get your team sticker - if you lose, the other team gets a sticker. Let's take a look at how this last game went:
