There’s an old adage in sports that says you want to be peaking at your absolute best at precisely the right time. Typically, the “right time” is reserved for the last week or so of the regular season, just a handful of days before postseason play ultimately gets underway. That said, don’t find fault with […]

Typically, the very first Monday back following the New Year’s holiday tends to be one of the least productive days of the entire year -yes, even a year that is only a few days old at that point. Whether you work, go to school, or just have errands to go out and run, the malaise […]

December 30, 2021 Andy Herr

No matter what a new year may seem bring, there often are the same old familiar storylines that eventually bubble-up and rise to the surface.

December 29, 2021 Andy Herr

Sometimes, all you really need is a change of pace.

December 19, 2021 Andy Herr

It seems odd to say given that the high school basketball season is often perceived to be so long when you consider that every teams plays rough 20-games per campaign, but sometimes clubs can certainly find themselves at a bit of a crossroads early in the year.

Expectations. They can either make you or break you. Of course, a lot of what hangs in the balance between which of those two pathways you venture on depends on what you’re made of internally.
