“Preparation is key.” It’s a cliche rattled off by every head football coach across the country. Put in the work ahead of time and they task itself becomes that much easier. While this may seem like overdone sports movie dialogue, there’s truth in those words. When you prepare for something, it makes your goal attainable. A major part of preparation is staying organized.
