Ralph Friedgen
Head Football Coach, University of Maryland

Coach Friedgen spoke about the necessity to have players who are dedicated to their sport and to their education. “I want people who are goal-oriented, I want producers. I want fighters, guys who persevere, who can endure the ups and downs. If I find that I have a guy who doesn’t take his classes seriously or skip class a lot, I tell him that we may as well part company right now because it makes no sense for our coaches to spend a lot of time working with somebody who won’t be around at the end of the semester anyway because of failing grades”.
