MNLA President's Message: Do You Like Who You Are Becoming?


The team was undefeated and was preparing for a favorable matchup against a winless team on Friday night. To say they were confident was an understatement. They believed that all they had to do was show up and they would win.

The coach looked on with disgust. Confidence was good but overconfidence is dangerous. The team was sloppy and unfocused. This lackluster practice was not the expectation.
