I want him to be himself. And I want him to be. He’s not afraid of consequences and pulls trigger and attack, has a positive mindset, continues to grow and learn, and I want him to have some ownership of what he’s comfortable with.
“It’s cool and it’s great when you’re on the sidelines calling plays but you’re not the one back there in the group chat. And you’re not the trigger. So I think it’s a legitimate effort. author of some of the things that he enjoys. And continue to help him improve. And he has a great mindset, he has some good mental toughness about him. So we just did. take it day by day. -week by week with him.”
