"When I first started, it was all about the wins. That's all I cared about was figuring out how I could win and a lot of the mentors were telling me when I was younger, 'Don't worry about the wins. The wins are byproducts of what you do. Just do what you do and do it right the wins are going to come. Don't worry about it.' And I was young and dumb and didn't really understand how to coach...Now I'm getting to the point where I understand what they were trying to tell me."
