JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
I just don’t get how younger players still screw up.
Not when you’ve got great examples every week of the consequences for making poor decisions.
Bad choices are the most expensive choices players make because they’ll cost you everything.
Don’t be the person that has to learn from personal experience; learn from others’ experiences.
