Video: 'You've got to give up something to become a champion'

The video below is going a million different ways all at once. Just like the way Jerry Mack likes it.

Hired away from South Alabama, Mack was charged with changing the culture around a North Carolina Central program that went a disappointing 5-7 last season. His avenues to change have been sacrifice and attention to detail. 

“The devil’s in the details,” Mack told the Durham (N.C.) Herald-Sun. “If we call a 3 o’clock meeting, the doors are locked at 3 o’clock.”

"Every day you've got to come out here and get a little bit better," says the video below. "Each day is a process. We've got to grow a little bit more as a team. Get a little bit better fundamentally, a little bit more disciplined every single day. That's the only way to become a champion. Every single time we take the field we have to take it with a passion...You've got to give up something to become a champion."
