Mindful : December 2014
Most coaches impose standards from the outside. Pete Carroll, head coach of the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks, asks his players to go inside— to find the confidence to be the best they can be. He coaches the whole person, and it changes their view of the game, and of life. The Game Changer By Hugh Delehanty The hip-hop music is blaring and Pete Carroll is loving it. Boom dada dada da da boom. Up on a hill overlooking the Seattle Seahawks’ practice field, an a rmy of fans, wearing blue-and-neon-green jerseys, ski masks, and war paint are pounding drums, waving flags, and screaming love cha nts to their heroes. Meanwhile down on the field, quarterbacks are throwing bullets, linemen are crashing into each other, and running backs are charging up the field as if it were the Super Bowl. And Carroll, the tea m’s energetic 63-year-old head coach, is dancing from one corner to the next, clapping his hands, shouting props to players, and rev ving up the beat. Boom dada dada da da boom. Then just when it looks as if things couldn’t get a ny crazier, a task force of Marines a rrives by helicopter, drops into the lake next to the field, and stages an amphibious attack on the training camp. It’s not a real attack, of course, just a show for the fans. But as the Marines swim ashore and take the beach, Carroll and the players crowd a round to greet them.
