Fifteen is a magic number if you’re a Denver Broncos fan today. It’s the number of points your team rallied back from, deep in the fourth quarter, to win while playing on the road. It’s also the jersey number of your starting quarterback, Tim Tebow. By the way, is there much debate left about who the starting quarterback in Denver should be?
Your youth football athlete should pay attention to what’s happening in Denver.
Tim Tebow fights. And he fights. And then he fights some more. As Tebow admitted, yesterday’s game wasn’t the prettiest contest for 57 minutes, but it’s how he led his team in the final 3 plus minutes that made the difference. What I found most interesting is there was no top flight receiver, Brandon Lloyd traded earlier in the week, for Tim to throw to. Just a crop of receivers that respected and believed in their leader and in each other. They fed off Tim’s unbelievable desire to win. It’s at that point that you see little used receivers like Daniel Fells making highlight film worthy catches.
A leader is truly successful at his job when he inspires others to be great. Not just good, but great. The Bronco’s Number 15 has shown an incredible ability to extract greatness out of his teammates. How do the leaders on your youth football team get greatness out of the other kids?
