Spartan Scroll VII - September 14th
Coach Ed Koester
It’s amazing what can be accomplished when no one claims the credit. Over the last several weeks everyone in our Spartan program has shown great desire to work together and accomplish the tasks at hand. Sure several individuals have worked tirelessly and on many occasions they have needed others to help and at times that help has not been found. Yet the work gets done, and the credit is shared by many. On behalf of our coaches and players let me thank those people who consistently do little things as well as great things for the benefit of all.
Unfortunately in our culture today we fight so many battles to protect the deserved rewards as well as the assumed. There is a constant strain for mine, my turn, my situation warrants recognition more than others, there is a loss too often of the “we”. The following descriptors of cultures of today may help us to avoid the drastic collapse that comes sometimes when we feel we are on the untouchable role.
