Pay Day Friday

"You put the work in Monday through Thursday...You get paid Friday!"

Coach Collin Drafts took over as head coach at East River High School in Orlando, FL in January. Team was 1-9 last year and won 8 games in 4 years.

From Coach Drafts, "Our staff is working tirelessly to change the culture here. We opened up our season with a 20-6 win over our rival University High School which we haven't beaten in 6 years. Here's an awesome video of the kids buying in, working together, and experiencing the pay off after Friday night. We call it - 'Pay Day Friday' and we say we plan to have a party in the locker room after every game." 

Putting in work with your brothers & experiencing the pay off! Love this team! Locker room party!

Congratulations to those young men who bought in and put in the work to get them to Pay Day Friday. Quality example of what Pete Carroll, Joe Maddon and Steve Kerr preach, you have to make it fun.
