The Ultimate Goal

In the preface to his book The Last Coach: A Life of Paul “Bear” Bryant, Alan Barra writes:

“Instead of grooming his players to become pros, for thirty-eight years Bryant coached as if he had a sacred obligation to make their lives better for having played football for him.”

The same philosophy applies to Academic Games coaches and to teachers in general. We don’t just teach subject matter; we teach in such a way that students will be better persons for having been in our classrooms and on our Academic Games teams.
