Commitment: It's Up to You by former TU Football Coach, Mr. David Rader
David will present the fundamentals leading to commitment - a trait he is convinced can be learned, taught, and exhibited. By using examples from his many years of coaching college football he gives illustration and insight to self-building and team-building.
