Photo: The culture sign that every football facility should have


Having the opportunity to tour a number of different college football facilities around the country, I always find myself intrigued by a program's choice of graphics and quotes.

Yesterday, this tweet of a Bill Walsh quote plastered on a wall caught my eye on Twitter, originally tweeted out by Western Michigan offensive line coach Brian Callahan. We understand the picture of the quote was taken from Stanford's locker room.

Speaking of culture and quotes, in his latest book Above The Line Urban Meyer pointed out the following quote that really struck a chord with me that's certainly worth sharing.

"Average leaders have quotes. Good leaders have a plan. Great leaders have a system."

Having quotes around the facility alone doesn't create the culture you desire, but it certainly does provide a daily dose of motivation, and an important reminder to those inside the building of what you're trying to build.
