Mike Ditka, Steve Mariucci Inspire as Under Armour High School Game Coaches
Many of us often wonder what it’s like to be inside the locker room when a famous coach is giving a speech. Do they deliver messages like Knute Rockne? Are they passionate? Moving? Inspirational? What are they like, what do they say? Thanks to TV cameras in the locker room, we get a sense of what they’re like, but you never know how much is real and how much is show. Problem is we only know what the current coaches are like, not some of the older ones.
Well two reputable and respected coaches were involved with the 2011 Under Armour All American Game, coaching each side. Check out what Mike Ditka and Steve Mariucci were like leading their locker rooms:
I know those kids are only high school players, but I hope they appreciate what they were a part of. As for the game, UCLA fans will be pleased to know quarterback commit Brett Hundley from Chandler, Arizona threw a touchdown pass early in that highlight package. And some Florida fans — not to mention the rest of the SEC — got their first glimpse of quarterback Jeff Driskel who broke a long touchdown run. At 6’4″ and 225lbs, he can give the Gators a similar weapon to what they had in Tim Tebow.
