HOW TO ACT WHEN YOU SCORE
Vince Lombardi, the legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers, always let his players know exactly what he was thinking. No coach could bawl out a player better than he. Henry Jordon, a Packers defensive tackle, said, “Lombardi treats us all alike, like dogs.” In 1967 Travis Williams was the kickoff return man for the Packers. On one occasion he returned a kick for a touchdown and then did a little dance in the end-zone. Lombardi called him over and said, “Travis, try to act like you have been in the end-zone before.”
It may require more grace to be a winner than a loser. How do you act when you score? Can you then exhibit restraint and humility?
