In case you don’t know, Athlete Twitter is 50% this:
No single action in a process creates success/failure. It is the cumulative impact of daily action over time that produces success/failure.— Tim Kight (@TimothyKight) July 27, 2017

Coach Twitter is basically Athlete Twitter with more fishing.

Coach Twitter is pretty reliably always this. At the levels of play that are worth paying any attention to, the coaches are the football guys/dudes who make up the sports deep state. They’re lifers, bro. They spent their formative years pumping iron and running cone drills and breaking down coverage schemes and hollering about how success is acquired. That’s them. The core is the same flavor as the skin. It’s sincere and pure because the football life doesn’t allow for anything else.
And sometimes, they go places only they understand.

Love it. Love it love it love it. Everyone can name their leadership award the TOUGH GRITTER or the PANTHER STRONG guy of the day, but it takes a true Football Guy to come up with this. It is original. It is also, at first glance, totally insane.
If you want an explanation, go here. But come on, it’s more fun to embrace the insanity. Football doesn’t have enough weird (anymore). Let’s go in on this. Take a minute and try to make some insane football award titles of your own. I’ll start:
- Whoever does the most on the field is the FIELD WIZARD of the day
- Whoever shows the most wisdom on the lines is the TRENCH SVENGALI of the day
- Whoever eats the most grass is the TURF BOYYYYYYYY of the day
- Whoever is the least visibly tired at the end of a long day is the SLEEPLESS ASIAN ELEPHANT of the day
Here’s some I just want to give out for any reason:
- NIGHT PYTHON
- FLASHLIGHT CAT
- MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONE
- #1 FOOTBALL ELK
- STEAK BUTT
And I’m feeling generous - so just for reading this post, you get one. Find your title with this helpful chart:
Go and fight - just remember to leave it all out there today! Yards are won and lost on the minute of the sweat. Don’t focus on the past when tomorrow’s games are won in the fields of midnight. Fight for every ounce of your life until the grind isn’t the problem. Fall backwards onto the brotherhood and surf into the lighthouse of victory. Conference championships are decided by 90% motivation and 100% determination. Go team!
