F.I.E.R.C.E. DB Attitude As coaches we want to instill a mindset about what it means to be a DB. This is the mental attitude I try to instill before we even step on the field. ALWAYS COMPETE: You may not be the biggest, fastest or strongest guy on the field but you are going to show everyone that you will not be pushed around and no matter what happens I am going to give my A game every play. Hold a Grudge: If a receiver catches a ball on you TAKE IT PERSONAL! be a little pissed and make him pay for it, whether it’s a run or pass! MY BALL: When the ball is in the air, it now becomes MY BALL! Go get it! Field Presence: I want receivers to be thinking about Newberg DB’s and where they might be coming from instead of thinking about their jobs. Never Quit on a Play: Always pursue even if ball is not passed to my receiver. If The ball is caught don’t quit, tray and make something happen. On field Attitude: Have an attitude when in between the lines. Be it and play like it. W.O. Killas!
