Ron Rivera's message to Commanders rookies
It's easy to forget that first-year players have been put through their paces at the team's rookie minicamp in recent days. This is an acclimatization period and a chance for those further down the depth chart to impress before OTAs, but the message from head coach Ron Rivera via Sports Illustrated was clear.
"More than anything else is pay attention. Be very attentive, pay attention. That's probably the biggest thing because one thing a coach wants to do is he wants to make sure he feels that what he's telling the young man, he's listening to, he's hearing and he's understanding. If you're not sure, ask straight up, ask and that's all right. It just shows that you wanna make sure you know what you're doing. You wanna make sure that you know you're doing it right."- Ron Rivera via Sports Illustrated
This is sound advice not only in football but within any sort of employment. Demonstrating a willingness to learn and having the confidence to speak up in pursuit of personal progress is always a solid foundation from which to build in any profession.
