What They're Saying

"We've been lucky to kids that have a commitment to always bring a high level, both in training and games. The nature of a competitive athlete is to want to win every time they step on the field. I think what we've tried to suggest to the kids is that winning is an important part of development. However, we've made it clear to them that we're not going to go into a win at all costs mentality."

-- Derby County Wolves coach Lars Richters, the 2008-09 U-15/16 Development Academy Coach of the Year.
