It is with great honor and privilege that I personally introduce our June 2013 “Athlete Of The Month” Mr.Richard Shields. Honest, Humble and Passionate are a few words that I would use to describe this amazing man. Over the course of the past 4 and a half years I have spent over hundreds of hours Coaching, training and learning along side Mr.Shields. “Did you know that it takes over 10,000 hours to become an expert at something” he once asked me. No! I had no idea I said. He then asked me if I read and I respond back YES! I can read. No Coach Luke he said do you read books? Before I could answer he turned and said I have a book I would like you to read called “The talent code” by Daniel Coyle a visionary piece that looks deep into why and how we become uber talented and what it takes to be great.
