-- couldn't sound good well thank you good to be back -- are gonna have -- big fan and a huge admirer of viewers and you and your work and this is a great book you know because about life -- and sports and so many ways reflect life doesn't.
It really does and we.
Tried to put it together the mentor leader and sometimes people look at that as being an oxymoron that if you're the leader you can't.
We work closely with people you -- meant to them I can't get close and help you.
And in my mind.
That's what a leader does is help and -- guys who and that's what we try to get across and that's what the book is all about what.
You talk about W do lead by example through step by step teaching.
And so you walk them through and and the like for example what would you tell your your that the -- the kids and I call them kids.
That you're coaching when you're the coach of the colts this is.
How we're gonna win we're we're not gonna fool people were not gonna come up with -- exotic stuff we're gonna do what we do a little better than everybody else -- -- -- closer knit unit than everybody else.
When the going gets tough we're gonna stick together and that's how we're gonna win and teach and encouraged those that.
You -- a little bit of an anomaly in terms NFL could you didn't -- that they that the team and and you -- high standards and how they had to treat each other right there mr.
No we really did and that's what we felt was going to be our events and I tried to -- them -- number one I can help you know what I'm doing.
But I care about you know wants you to be the best you can be and once -- does believe that whether it's family whether it's business whether it's a sports thing.
If people believe you're there to help them and you can help them.
You're gonna get them loyalty.
He said if you take only one thing from this -- let it -- this relationship -- relationships -- ultimately what -- our relationship with god and with other people.
The key to becoming a minter.
And a leader is learning had to put other people first.
It's pretty simple but it's based profound on the other hand simple straightforward right from the Bible that's where Christ the them come here to serve and help.
And I think it works.
Though it's proof that.
Pretty good track for a college I I think it does have the final a lot of the made of the fact Michael Vick -- very talented quarterback.
Got an all this trouble you took him on as as a mentor to him.
I love dogs I got to be honest that killed let's.
You -- recently gotten a little more trouble has -- open.
Michael is actually doing well he's.
Going in the right direction I think one of Philadelphia's been great form -- organization has put people in place to help them and help them grow.
And that's what is all about and and I think so often.
We don't understand with -- specially these young athletes they have not had the mentoring they have not had that.
Disciple knowing that you and I would take for granted we get from our parents and so to come alongside and say.
Michael tell me what you wanna do what are you want to do in life how do you want to.
Help the younger generation.
OK if you wanna do a different person really I think he has what.
The things that I see as an outsider to it to professional sports and I'm a fan a sports I love I love sports -- the my whole life.
Is that you watch these athletes all of a sudden they got fame.
They got fortune they've got money they got women throwing themselves -- at them you're you're Christian first you make that very very clear.
And what do you tell these young guys when they walk out of the locker room and there's you know -- you know.
-- -- a hundred great looking women that a look at -- take them home that night to be blunt here.
You have to talk about that that's gonna talk about I did what when why do -- Say here's what's gonna happen today.
Do exactly which -- saying you're gonna be a target because you're young and you have money people are gonna come after you.
Strictly because you have money.
Not because they wanna be your friend because they can get some -- your money.
You have good looks you have virility you have money your target for one.
You have to learn how to handle it what is going to be your priorities do you wanna be -- great football player and a good person in the community.
Or do you wanna just have fun and flame out and and a couple of years and now those -- the conversations we would have because I thought it was so I had a lot of goalless they have.
Well a lot of them do something there and some -- -- takes a little while longer.
But I felt it was much to help them not only be better players but to be better men and so -- have those -- So -- you know so yeah I was reading your book about.
You know you talk about.
Parents at the sporting events like my kids play competitive tennis.
And it is so there's a lot of pressure on those kids -- they put on themselves.
And you know.
You talk about -- toughness but you don't like it when people yell at the umpires you don't like it when.
They're putting too much pressure on the kids to win and and and things like that what is that where where is the balancing act.
It's Woodward -- in our kids number one how we teach -- into to compete and do the best they can and accept the results are we -- -- and -- that the only thing that's important is coming out on top.
Trying to let them have fun at six and seven years old -- are we trying to get them to be number one.
And now they'll be fun a time to get to be number one in and grow that competitiveness.
Coats no Mike -- -- in Pittsburgh.
Always used to say that to the fundamentals is important role for the first three letters a fundamental -- that few men.
Who who will never forget that whether -- plan for Super Bowl and not and I think many times parents forget that that part of it.
That gets crazy what -- have been a Little League Baseball games with -- people wanna fight the umpire for current will help.
We were having trouble getting little -- going because we can't give people a coats and the reason they don't wanna coats is that only deal with the parents so I think this is the number one role that we have.
Greatest player you have a coach.
Lot of good ones Peyton Manning output renovate.
It's gotta be there is also coach always good to see if thank you very much -- I -- zone.
