Tulsa University coach Philip Montgomery spoke at the Indian Nations Football Conference in the Cox Business Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma on July 25th. The event was attended by several youth football coaches who currently have their own teams, and Montgomery’s main message to them was that they do not know how important or impactful they are on their players. The 43 year old made sure to emphasize that the role of a coach isn’t just to help his or her team get wins, but they are assisting the development of a kid in their most influential years. Montgomery wanted his fellow coaches to continue to practice positive reinforcement for their players and always end practices and games with positive words, because that is what will stay with them at the end of the day.
Montgomery used to play football himself for Tarleton State University until 1994 before retiring from the field and heading to the sidelines to coach in 1995. Throughout his coaching career he has worked for Tarleton St., Stephenville HS, Denton HS, Houston, Baylor, and now Tulsa as of earlier this year. This will be his first season with Tulsa and he is expected to put on a good show for the audience and improve his team, as practices will start in early August.
Montgomery spoke at the Indian Nations Football Conference at the end of July to several other coaches in the Cox Business Center in Tulsa, and reminded them all of how key they are to their players’ lives. It was a very motivating discussion and there is no doubt that his tips and advice helped these coaches set up for success for their new seasons this fall.
