Coaching wisdom from a master coach Clay Erro

Clay Erro is the former football coach at Enterprise High School in Redding California. He is the winningest football coach in Northern California history. We have been privileged to have Clay as a GAIN faculty member. More important than his success was his ability to teach young men to be responsible adults and citizens. His approach was unconventional with premium on relationships and teaching.

There were no rules, rather some simple guidelines:

  • We not me
  • No excuses
  • No messengers
  • No sympathy groups

Here are a few other gems from Clay:

  • Are you here or present?
  • The quickest way to get better is to get smarter
  • Competitions are opportunities, chances to measure YOUR progress.
  • Coach your position

Clay is the coach we all wish we would have had. We will have Coach Erro on the GAINcast soon to go into detail on his approach.
