The Most Important Thing I've Learned In The Game Of Football (UNFILTERED | DANNY SHELTON #6)

Danny on what makes a great teammate:
What makes a great teammate? What makes a great player? If you're going to be a great teammate, it means you're going to be that guy who's going to buy into the culture and the system, who's going to listen to what the coaches have to say, do what the coaches want you to do, all for the better of the team - really.

You're not one of those guys who's going to be selfish and constantly arguing with coaches or constantly ignoring what you have to do. You're going to be that guy who's doing everything right or at least doing what needs to be done. You're also going to be that guy who's going to finish everything. Like in workouts, you're not going to skip reps, you're not going to give up on a teammate if they're slowing down.

Treating each other like family, I feel like that's the easiest way to become a better teammate is if you see your teammate as a brother. You go out with you teammate and you know that you're going to have his back if anything happens. Step up and take charge so that goes into being a great leader. Just trying to be a role model for each other.
