“I won’t accept anything less than the best a player’s capable of doing…and he has the right to expect the best that I can do for him and the team!” – Lou Holz FIGHTING IRISH Although I’m not a big sports fan, I think the story of Notre Dame and the inspiration of Lou Holtz is something that needs to be shared with everyone. He started his coaching career in 1961 at William and Mary and continued on to coaching at Connecticut (1964-65), South Carolina (1966-67) and Ohio State (1968) but he is most well known for his 10 year stint at Notre Dame.

He took over a struggling Notre Dame program in 1986 and wasted no time in turning it around. He got his players’ attention at the first team meeting upon his introduction. Holtz had the names removed from the backs of the players jersey’s to emphasize the “team” effort. There is no one person playing for Notre Dame…all the players come together to reach a common goal and all should be recognized equally for that. Just 3 years after taking over the program, Holtz coached a team to win all 11 of their regular season games and won the Fiesta bowl 34-21 against the West Virginia who was ranked #3 claiming the national championship title. The story of Lou Holtz has taught me one thing…with great leadership anything is possible but you also have to have the right players to work with. I strive every day to become a better leader for my team of “players”. In the Real Estate industry, our team strives to become the best in the area, state, region and world. We work together for a common goal and if one player needs help, there is always around to step up and help. I must admit, I am very lucky to have the team of individuals I have working with me. They are the ones who make our “team” so successful. Even though each person has a responsibility to the team, we are all here for one reason…to create raving clients!
