“It’s easy to find players who work hard. I look for even more than those who work hard, who is the competitor? Who loves to compete? And what I’m looking for that is, how are they handling losses, bad calls from the refs, and feedback from their coaches? How are they competing in drills when they don’t think anybody is watching? All these things, they tell you about a player’s character, about their resilience, about their mental and physical toughness, and ultimately how much they love to compete.”
