That word seems so personal, but that is what coaches do. I am heading out to the east coast this weekend to evaluate, critique, observe, and watch every little detail of an athlete's game.
My job as a coach is to decide if a player is going to be physically good enough to play in our system, mentally tough enough to survive it, and emotionally passionate about this game so much that they would go above and beyond their competition.
Then the most important evaluation comes into play. What kind of person are they? Will they be a good teammate? Are they coachable? Are they of high integrity? Will they "fit" here?
Once we decide that, the recruiting begins. We know you. Now it's time for you to know Montana State.
