The Moore American offers a fine story about Tom Pecore, Coach at Putnam City North in Oklahoma City, OK. PNC graduates include Missouri State Bears Lance Parker (MSU 2008, Chivas USA) and Chad Johnson (2010)
“Five years ago I was a drill sergeant type,” Pecore said. “Inflexible. It was my way or the highway. We will win and fight. It’s everybody against us. A combat attitude. We won’t do that anymore.”
Pecore decided that winning couldn’t be the focal point of his job. Turning boys into men was now at the top of his agenda. And for Pecore that meant changing his style.
