Medina High School head football coach Dan Sutherland decided following the 2014 season that the status quo wasn’t working.

The Bees had only won a handful of games in his first three seasons at the helm.

Searching for a different approach for the following season that would hopefully yield improved results, Sutherland decided to have each member of the team set weekly individual – not team – goals.

The unique goal-setting technique doesn’t downplay the importance of playing for and with one another in the ultimate team sport. Instead, it emphasizes the important role each team member plays in helping the squad accomplish its collective objective of winning games.

Sutherland discussed the new mindset and this year’s team in a preseason phone interview with Channel 3 Sports. Listen to the embedded audio file to learn more about the Bees.

Medina, which returned nine starters – and 19 lettermen – from the 2014 squad that posted a 2-8 record, opened the 2015 campaign with a resounding 56-13 home win against Lakewood last week.

The Bees, who are members of the newly created Greater Cleveland Conference, will continue nonconference play on Friday with a road contest at Kenston.
