I recently read an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer about ACL injuries.  Dr. Tim Cremcheck, the Red’s doctor, recently did 10 surgeries in one day.  All of the surgeries were performed on high school athletes.  He has already done over 300 surgeries this year on ACL’s alone. Dr. Cremcheck believes that young athletes are over-extending...

This week when Batesville plays Lawrenceburg in football, it will be a good chance for you to see their new “turf” football field.  It is a beautiful orange and black color pattern around a green field which replaces the old “Mud Bowl”.   It should be a good long-term investment for Lawrenceburg.

One time when I went to a coaching clinic I found an open seat in the front row.  I had only been coaching a few years at that time.  When I looked over to my left, I was amazed to see who was sitting next to me.  It was John Wooden!  He was coaching...

Good Interview

September 14, 2015
By

I was recently asked what makes a good interview?  I thought of 5 things that probably make an individual a good interviewer.  They are: 1.  Be yourself and don’t try to copy someone else’s style.  Not everyone is a Marty Brennamen. 2.
