Everybody appreciates a coach that leads by example — it’s nice to see a person practicing what they preach. Georgia Tech head basketball coach Brian Gregory is one of those people. Today, Gregory was putting his team through “team leadership and toughness training”, which consisted of players ditching the hardwood for the gridiron. Players had to squat back-to-back with teammates, drag each other across the field, and hold crazy weights above their heads for as long as possible. The best part? Coach Gregory made sure participated as well: Gotta sweat with ‘em! pic.twitter.com/X7pAOXck2a — Coach Brian Gregory (@GTBrianGregory) June 29, 2013 Robert Carter is tough and smart! Picked the smallest guy to drag! pic.twitter.com/CIQHcKdTwr — Coach Brian Gregory (@GTBrianGregory) June 29, 2013 Team Leadership and Toughness Training for @gtmbk this morning! #Currahee pic.twitter.com/YQGEx3gSZb — Coach Brian Gregory (@GTBrianGregory) June 29, 2013 Pretty cool move by the coach — this is the stuff that really earns respect from players.
