My 7th Grade Band Director Made Me Cry

My 7th grade band director made me cry.

In 7th grade, I was the fat kid that quit football on the first day because I didn't’ want to run sprints. I didn’t fit in, I didn’t wear the right clothes or have the right friends, and I couldn’t even decide what instrument to play in the band.

One day my director made me cry because I couldn’t play the drums right, and I was mortified that everybody was seeing that I had no idea what i was doing.

Four Core Values

In our latest episode, Mackey is with the athletes from Prosper HS.

He talks about the importance of making good decisions both on and off the field. The decisions you make off the field will show how much you are truly dedicated to the team and your team's mission.

You cannot compartmentalize the different things in your life. You can't work hard to become A+ on the field and be satisfied with being C- in the classroom. If you're not continuously pursing excellence across the board, you're not pursuing excellence at all.
