Franciscan University of Steubenville head basketball coach John Lamanna is focusing on 4 main virtues this year.

They are called the Cardinal Virtues: Prudence, Temperance, Justice and Wisdom.

The team focuses on a virtue for the week and at each practice he names a Practice Captain.

The Practice Captain has the responsibility of speaking at the beginning of that practice on a concrete example of how that virtue has been lived out either by himself or someone else on campus.


John Lamanna

This gives every player the opportunity to share what the virtue means to them in their particular life.

It helps them make the virtue more “their own” because they have to speak about it to their teammates.

Coach Lamanna does an amazing job of mentoring his players.

He dedicates about 20 minutes to each and every player every week to discuss faith, academics, family and basketball.


Here is a short video where Coach Lamanna speaks about his basketball program:


On a side note, Franciscan University will play an exhibition game at University of Kentucky's Rupp Arena in November of 2014.

We spoke with two of Coach Lamanna's players about the Practice Captain initiative to get their insight.


Caleb Knorr

Caleb Knorr - Junior Forward from Austin, MN

At the beginning of practice, everyone gathers around the Practice Captain and he talks about the virtue that we are focusing on. Then each player shares what they are offering the practice for, for example one of our teammates his grandfather died so the players offered their practice up for him and fore the repose of the soul of his grandfather. This brings our team so much closer together.

Then the Practice Captain leads the team in prayer and then we go.

The virtue I had was Prudence - right wisdom applied to action.

I shared that we need to stay focused, have a clear mind, an active mind willing to learn, every day we can become great, we can improve, we have to be active in learning and if we do it every day we will be successful.


Garrison Holmes

Garrison Holmes - Freshman Guard from Temecula, CA

We start off practice by getting in a circle and we give everyone a hug so if we got after it the last practice with somebody, well that’s over, we’re family again. We start fresh.

The virtue I had to speak on when I was Practice Captain was Justice which is always giving people what they deserve. I spoke the week before our first game so we had been going at it for about a month a half, all practices and no games so it gets rough after a while.

We’ve been working hard for about a month and a half, giving people what they deserve, it would be unjust to let up, unjust to let that month of work go to waste, whether we are up by 30 or down by 30 it is unjust to not work hard for the team we are playing against, so even in life outside it is just to give someone a helping hand when they are in need.


Doing something every day to focus on virtue and getting your players involved - you can't go wrong!

Starting Paladin quarterback Ryan McCarthy and senior starting fullback Andrew Wilborn, took time out of their practice schedule this week to join other athletes, scholars and student leaders in a video salute to their lady Paladin counterparts. “Our goal with this video is to promote the virtue of modesty across the Paladin student body”, said Paladin junior Jack Frain.

The project was spearheaded by Pinecrest parents Laurie Flanigan and Kim Bass who were able to quickly organize this project for Homecoming weekend. “We were inspired by a similar video we saw on YouTube earlier this fall and thought…We can do that. Once Kim Bass and Coach Weingart got involved, I knew it would turn out awesome!”, said Mrs. Flanigan.

Kings Ridge Prayer

All video was shot on campus over a Saturday and Sunday and the entire project was a very closely held secret kept from the Paladin ladies. The project was revealed during a live-reenactment at the Homecoming Pep Rally. The vocal performances for the project were recorded in room 110 which was temporarily converted into a high-tech sound studio.

The video features the vocal stylings of freshman Addison Ehle and his talented singing and dancing varsity classmates Sean Flanigan, Ryan McCarthy, Aaron Bass, Jp McCabe, Greg Metz, Jack Frain, Christopher Birozes Andrew Wilborn, Jack Meersman, Jose Ruiz, Evan Montalbano, and of course Coach Weingart!

Virtue Makes You Beautiful Lyrics 

3 Dressing modest, we know it is rough 
When the world is making it so tough 
Don’t need short skirts or low cut shirts 
Being the way that you are is enough ou ough

Everyone else doesn’t seem to care 
Everyone but you

Baby you light up the world like nobody else 
By the way that you speak and respect yourself 
Girls with integrity are hard to find these days 
You gotta know Oh Oh 
You are so beautiful 
If only you saw what I can see 
You’d understand why I need your modesty 
Right now I’m talking to you and you must believe 
You gotta know Oh Oh 
Virtue is so beautiful oh oh oh 
That’s what makes you beautiful

Yo, big men…only think of the girls that are virtuous baby 
.So c-come on 
Must have it wrong 
.To prove we are right we put it in a song. 
We don’t know why (you, you ,you) 
You’d want a guy 
That only cares what he sees with his eyes (here here)

Everyone else doesn’t seem to care 
Everyone else but you

Baby you light up the world like nobody else 
By the way that you speak and respect yourself 
Girls with integrity are hard to find this days 
You gotta know Oh Oh 
You are so beautiful 
If only you saw what I can see 
You’d understand why I need your modesty 
Right now I’m talking to you and you must believe

I am always inspired by the testimonies of coaches who are giving their lives for the good of young people.

Coach Todd Naumann is one such coach. May his words challenge you to dig deeper and coach from your heart.

Virtue = Strength, Lou Judd 
72 Virtues to Help You Coach Virtue


Coach Todd Naumann

As a coach of many years I have come to recognize the value athletics can play in the life of a young person. Each season presents an entirely new set of challenges and opportunities. Our players bring with them their hopes, dreams, successes, and failures. The season always plays itself out as a microcosm of our own lives. There are going to be tremendous victories, stunning defeats, and many lessons to be learned along the way. The gift of the season is so precious because it allows us to play the game while at the same time preparing ourselves for the more important game of life.


I am a football coach at Archbishop McNicholas High School in Cincinnati Ohio. It is a Catholic school of some 600 students. The football team has had moderate success over the years, but has never been the dominant force in the area. Recently the program has seen an uptick in victories with a state final four appearance three years ago as well as the winning of a league title and a playoff appearance last year. The team is positioned well in the standings again this year. One of the recent changes Head Coach Mike Orlando brought to the table was to align the football team with the Sports Leader program. This commitment to putting the well-being of our athletes first has made a resoundingly positive impact on our team.



Last year, in the midst of winning a league title and making a playoff appearance we had some players get off track. Poor choices off the field ended in dismissal for some from the team. As a result, these young men learned a terribly important lesson... there are consequences for your behavior. We are all members of a family and our selfish decisions can have a negative impact on those around us. These young men did not finish the season with us, but were given the opportunity to rejoin the team in the off-season and prove they had made the positive changes necessary to become the men the God had created them to be.


That Youth May Attain Full Stature in Christ. Bringing Faith to Sports.

As the days past by and the long, hard off-season came to an end, the journey of a new football season began. Unsure of our senior leadership, there was plenty of anxiety heading into this year’s campaign. Athletic talent has never been the trademark of our football team and it appeared quickly this year would be no different. However, heart, determination, and love would soon abound. What I discovered through this season’s journey is that our team’s foundation was being built around a couple of key seniors that had not even finished the season with us last year.


The 2013 McNicholas Rockets Football Team

I can’t describe the feeling of personally witnessing a group of young boys become men! To watch them grow up before your very eyes is just incredible. Through the trials and tribulations of the season, with solid mentoring, attending weekly Mass, the saying of many prayers, and good old fashioned hard work, boys that were struggling at this time last season have become the bedrock of this year’s team. This past weekend, one of these young men had the privilege of representing our football team as a captain. To see him walk onto the field and represent his teammates made my heart burst with joy.


Father-Son Jersey Night Ceremony

I don’t want to overstate the significance of sports in our society, because I believe that sports are often overemphasized. Many times we are presented with the win at all-cost mentality that leads to the destruction of young people, not to their betterment. I do however want to testify to the beauty of God’s redemptive grace through athletics. Sports are given to us as a gift to help transform the lives of our student-athletes for eternity. The growth of our young men this season has reinforced for me what I believe to be the very best about athletics. These experiences make a difference well beyond any win or loss. They allow us as coaches to guide our youth to success far beyond their wildest imagination as they uncover the virtues that the Lord has placed deep within their hearts. Courage, Mercy, Humility, and Faithfulness have been on full display this season with the Rockets, and I am sure blessed to be a part of it!

I recently had a conversation with a SportsLeader parish coordinator who very candidly and humbly shared some difficulties she was having with one of her own sons.

The son in question was going through a spat where he had a very bad attitude and was just plain disrespectful to his mother.

Sound familiar? It does for me.

I think every single parent out there, if we're honest, we reach a point where we feel like we need someone to step in and "give a talking to" one of our children.

None of us can do it alone.


So this parent very humbly reached out to one of her son's coaches and said, "please work him over and talk with him."

The coach called her to get more specifics as to the son's behavior.

This same son was eavesdropping on the conversation and overheard the Mom sharing all this with the coach.

Upon hanging up the boy was mortified, tears, drama … He did not want his coach thinking badly of him.

Too bad.

Said son was sent to practice and worked over he was. Two different coaches took the time to talk with him, very firmly, very charitably, very clearly.


Is the son now an angel? No. But it definitely helped.

This is a perfect example of the power coaches have to mentor our young people.

Coaches can be a partner, a resource … to help us as parents form our children in virtue.

Afterward, one of the coaches told the mom, "If we had more parents like you our world would be a better place."

We need one another.

Good parents need good coaches to help them out and good coaches need good parents to assist them as well.

Let's work together to forge virtue in our young people.

SportsLeader Digital ebook Manual Strength for Life


_Last week our virtue theme of the week was ASSERTIVE. The story from the manual was about a young man who collected 1,000 jars of peanut butter … so our guys decided to organize a canned food drive and deliver the goods to Victory Kitchen to help the poor. _

We organize everything according to MENTORING GROUPS and this is a competition amongst them. The winning group gets a special dinner.

Some teams may not do too much with their mentoring groups but we do a ton through them. In the pre-season we did the typical fundraiser discount card … We have 38 kids, $10 a card … they sold 850 cards … $8,500 which is the most the company has ever seen on a per kid basis … creating competition within the mentoring groups was the key.

A few weeks back we had worked on the virtue of TEAMWORK. The suggested team resolution after the story was to organize a team get together to have some good clean fun. One of our Seniors took this to heart, asked his parents and did it. He and his parents took care of everything, fed the whole team and we had a blast.

One of our Freshmen thought, "Why not me?" He asked his parents … and now we are having another team get together at his house …

The team unity, the bond, the brotherhood has been awesome. In the midst of all the service projects and team get togethers we got it done on the field this past week as well. It can be done!


And what is more amazing is that our season has been kid of disappointing in the wins column if you know what I mean. We are one of the smaller schools in Ohio and most of our games are against schools twice our size. Next year that changes and we are excited about it!

Most of the time, when the losses pile up, teams drift apart, kids don't buy in, there is no brotherhood and everyone just wants the season to be over with.

Our team is the exact opposite of that. We have been getting tighter, more united every week … and is has EVERYTHING to do with the SportsLeader virtue program. The structure, the guide, the intentionality, the stories, mentoring, ceremonies, resolutions … it just all adds up and really makes a difference.

Last year we had 4 juniors and this year we have 11 Seniors … so we picked up 7 kids for their Senior year … when we did not win too many games last year.


2 of the kids came up to me personally and told me the reason they were coming out for football was because of the virtue program … the team togetherness.

During one of our games this season we had two Dads from our team with less than stellar behavior. The bleachers were inches from our bench and they are screaming and cussing … the works.

After the game, both of the players whose Dads were doing this texted me apologizing for their Dad's behavior and telling me that they are going to sit down with their Dad and talk with him about it. And they did.

We have since had one of those Dads come in requesting a meeting with all the coaches so he could apologize for his behavior in person.

2010 panther color

I did a radio interview recently and the guy asked me a really good question: "What do you do to make sure your kids do not get into trouble?"

I simply rattled off everything the SportsLeader program is about for the next 10 minutes. I think I shocked him.

_But afterwards I asked myself, "Five years ago how would I have answered that question?" _

I probably would have fumbled through that one.

My coaches are mentioning that they are better dads and husbands … that they are putting these virtues into practice in their lives now. Whenever I hire a new coach, the first thing I talk about is SportsLeader. If I sense any discomfort, he won't be coaching with the Panthers.

Next week is homecoming week so our virtue theme will be conviction and we are going to be mentoring about that all week: dealing with peer pressure, making good choices, being the leaders who set the tone and not letting others set it for us.

Mentoring is one of the three pillars of SportsLeader.

Our young men and women of today need one on one attention that encourages them to make resolutions … take positive steps forward in their life … to do something.

It is also a great way to grow as a coach.


Coach Chris Tracy with his daughters.

Here below is a testimony from Chris Tracy, Head Football Coach at Franklin County High School in Frankfort KY.


Ryan Timmons WR for the University of Kentucky

Chris was blessed to be an important part in the life of a young man by the name of Ryan Timmons. Ryan is now a starting WR for the University of Kentucky football team as a Freshman. Their mentoring relationship has helped Ryan to achieve many of the goals he set for himself.

Go mentor a player today!

Virtue = Strength, Lou Judd


This is going on my fourth year at Franklin County. We began with the SportsLeader program in my first. While we have done the mentoring from the beginning, this is the first year that I feel that it hasn't only helped individuals, but the entire team.

_Mentoring has allowed me, as a head coach, to better understand the "pulse" of the team. By that I mean I have been able to better understand when our boys are tired, worn down, or just plain frustrated. _

Mentoring has led to our program implementing a "coaches council". I have a player from each class meet with me as a group during our Saturday practices, every other week. The boys were feeling they didn't have any input in the program and this was our way to address it.


L to R: Ryan Timmons, Coach Chris Tracy and Logan Woodside who is now a QB at the University of Toledo.

There are many things on a daily basis that mentoring does for me as a head coach. I can have conversations with kids that they wouldn't normally have as an adult. Our kids need that more than most.

FYI, my wife has started a program at her elementary school. Its called watch DOGS (Dads of Great Students). It is where fathers come into the school and give their entire day to the school. Really awesome. I have spoken twice at her events trying to get Dads to sign up. I always mention SportsLeader as a model. I truly feel that we are at war for the hearts, souls, and minds of our future generations.

A great reminder for us as to WHY we should coach.

Virtue = Strength, Lou Judd 
SportsLeader Web Site


Dear Coach,

The challenges that all of us face in living today are daunting and energy draining. To many young people just making every day decisions are mind blowing and for many the wrong decisions are often the answer. The social connections of today’s world present a difficult challenge and without a road map navigation is very difficult.

My adult life has been a complex juggling between pursuing my professional growth and my family. I have made numerous moves around the country to further my professional goals. Every move has been difficult but it has been very difficult for my family. Shelley and I were married in Ohio; my daughters were born in Colorado, my son in Indiana. My parents lived in Ohio and I was making career moves every three to four years. My daughter Nicki made 4 moves in 5 years and experienced some issues along the way. She was making some decisions and choosing to be around kids that would have had a negative impact on her future.

Then something magical happened. We moved to Gainesville, Florida and she's in 7th grade and we're starting to make the decisions where she is going to go to school and obviously I'm the second boss in that household. My wife says, "There's this high school volleyball coach named Jeff Reavis down in Gainesville. He has some collegiate experience, he was a great player, he's a great coach, he's really tough on kids and I want her to play for him."

It was Buchholz High School, a school of 2,800 kids, and I wasn't a big fan of that. I've recruited a lot of places, and a lot of times a school with 2,800 kids is huge and not really what I wanted for my kid. I wanted my daughter to go to some private school with 10 kids so we knew what was going on in her life.

Well I lost that battle and it was the greatest decision we ever made. The same little girl who was starting to get difficult started to grow up. Well, who knows what I would have been dealing with today if this high school coach didn't enter her life. 
So all these years of coaching and mentoring and getting involved in kids' lives finally came full circle for me. All of a sudden my daughter, mine, not yours, mine ... was going through some stuff and we get the perfect situation. We put her in this high school and this volleyball program and she's up at 6 AM with a passion for living.

And this coach is inside out, upside down on her. If she misses something, she's going to wish she hadn't and all of a sudden, overnight, I see this same kid being very respectful. She's getting up early and I'm driving her to these early workouts. I would sneak in and watch and I'm watching this coach and the way he's pushing these kids and the way he is treating these kids the same way, exactly the same way I coach.

Steadily, I see this little girl having a sense of team, of selflessness, of respect and I wish I could stand in front of you and say I taught her that ... I tried, I tried but sometimes they don't look at coach the same way they look at Dad. I'm just that coach. I'm that guy that moved them to all these different places ...

And because of that, my daughter just made Academic All-ACC at Georgia Tech; she's a 3.85 student; she's a very virtuous girl; she's one of the most respectful persons I've ever been around and by the way she's still my best friend. 

Because this coach had a very positive impact on my little girl as she grew. Once again, with all due respect, not your little girl, my little girl and that's when things really started to change.

So that really started a change in me. I started to take a different approach to recruiting now and what we try to do for our players. I'm a living testimony of someone whose child was impacted by a coach who changed her life and I am forever grateful to this coach. If you've ever been through something like that, it's not a little overwhelming, it's very overwhelming.

Why am I sharing all of this with you?

Because I believe as coaches we can all grow stronger in how we coach and mentor the young people under our care and tutelage. There is an organization called SportsLeader that is helping coaches across the country by using a very practical coaches manual, in-person staff training, and an inspirational web site that can help impact the lives of your players more intentionally through a virtue program that can be used by public and private schools alike.

SportsLeader is an organization that encompasses the leadership components that are applicable to coaches at all levels. I spent part of last year working with my son’s youth football team. Coaches at every level of athletics have the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives by living and teaching leadership, character and integrity. As coaches give of themselves by actions and words, their sharing of their virtues becomes evident as selfishness goes out the window. Young people can learn that being humble and living life the right way can be much more satisfying than being in the news for doing the wrong thing.

A life-long friend of mine, Dean Hood, Head Football Coach at Eastern Kentucky University has developed a great relationship with these men over the past few years now, does a Senior Virtue Camp weekend with them and his recommendation was enough for me to want to meet with them and work with them.

Please take some time to visit their web site at

A representative from SportsLeader will contact you to see if you would like to get involved.

I wish all Teachers and Coaches the strength, courage and wisdom to accept the position of Leadership and to positively impact the future of the young men and women we work with. They need you!

I recently had a great conversation with Jake Kolbe, Senior QB, of the Naperville Central (IL) Redhawks.


He is a tremendous leader and I think his words show how much impact virtue, mentoring and ceremony are having on him and his teammates.

This is COMMITMENT week and EDUCATION APPRECIATION week for the Redhawks.

This is the letter the players should write a note on and give to someone important in their educational process. This can be any person, a teacher, bus driver, coach, cafeteria worker, custodian or administrator from any building they have attended.

I have always loved playing football and being with my friends.

But all the ceremonies make it that much more fun, that much more special and it has been huge part of my high school experience.

At this point I can't imagine football without it and I feel sorry for those guys who play on teams who just have the wins and the losses.

IMG_2087 - Version 2

Notice the sticker on helmet. Every Mom puts a sticker on her son's helmet signifying her love for her son and that he will play for her.

The ceremonies bring a lot of heart, meaning and purpose to every game, to every week.

Out of all the ceremonies, the mother-son brunch is my favorite because it is rare that you get to spend a whole day with your Mom.

I enjoy the same stuff as my Dad and we spend tons of time together, so having a special moment with Mom is important to me.


Every Monday our team gets introduced to a new virtue, a new theme. This week is commitment.

The team enjoys focusing on a new virtue each week and the virtue is always something we need to grow stronger, to make us better. If not we might get stale.

These virtues teach us life lessons and help us with life. Football is just a game and even if we make it to the pros it is going to end some day but we will always need virtue no matter what path our life takes.

I've committed to playing football at Illinois State next year.

I chose there mainly because it is so close to home so my parents can come see me play all the time.

It is also known for its education program and after college I want to become a teacher and a coach, most likely a high school football coach because of all the tremendous experiences I have had over the years.

I really admire and look up to my head coach, Mike Stine.

A few months ago I was able to sit down and visit with Coach Eric Sutulovich of the Atlanta Falcons. I got to meet his family as well. An extraordinary man who has his priorities really straight.

He has endorsed SportsLeader wholeheartedly and wants to help others do the same.


Here is a video testimony

and below a letter.

Virtue = Strength, Lou Judd


Dear Leaders who Work with Youth,

My name is Eric Sutulovich and I am currently an Assistant Coach with the Atlanta Falcons of the NFL. I work the Special Teams.

Our nation is in desperate need of leaders who will boldly guide our country with virtue.

_The NFL is a business but it is also a team sport, where virtuous leadership is necessary for the good of the whole. _

Many of our schools across the country are excellent institutions but over the years their identity has weakened a bit ...

I believe SportsLeader is an organization that can help your school grow and form those virtuous leaders of tomorrow.

_Sports presents a huge opportunity to form the kids in virtue development. Where maybe only 15% of the kids are involved with youth ministry perhaps 85-95% are involved with sports. _

Therefore, involving virtue formation into all of our sports programs is a great opportunity to form the kids.

_Many good coaches do this but increasingly many more do not. At present it’s all up to the goals of the individual coach. _

_That’s why I thought it might be of interest to take a proven program like SportsLeader as a way of making sure all our coaches were on the same page. _

Thanks again for checking out SportsLeader.

Eric Sutulovich

We frequently receive very inspiring responses to our emails. Here below is a recent example from Vince Oliver, head track coach at Franciscan University of Steubneville.

Please consider inviting your friends, family members and team members to sign up for the newsletter

Virtue = Strength, Lou Judd 
SportsLeader Web Site 

I read this email about a week ago I guess its been. Being a father for the last 26 years and a coach for the last 20 years or so it made me check myself. WOW was it a reality check for me... I didn't do so well after reflecting on myself towards my children.

Last night my 6' 2", 225 lb 13 yr old played the first game of his 8th grade season. Throughout the game, I found myself watching him play and finding things he could improve on and techniques, that if employed, would make him a better player on both sides of the ball. He has potential to be something and that's not dad talking, that's 20 years of coaching talking. Anyhow, the game was over and the score wasn't in his teams favor. As they left the sidelines, the first thing he did was look for me. I was absolutely shocked at the look I was getting, I guess because I was cognizant of that guy that I've been. You know what I'm talking about... Oh boy, there's dad... What's he going to say to me this time? As I approached him, I put one arm around his waist and the other behind his head and pulled him close and said to him, "I'm sorry your team wasn't successful tonight, but man did I love watching you play." After he said THANK YOU! he looked at me like, who is this guy and where did my dad go?

I was absolutely amazed what happened next.... 3 HOURS of conversation about his game and what he thought and how he thought he played and asking me to show him how to better take on a kick out block and how better he can use his hands and feet and just everything else his ingenious mind could think of.

I wanted to share this with you briefly and simply say.... Thank you. I put my head on my pillow last night, thanked God for my day and for all of the gifts I've been bestowed and then I cried. I've been that dad. I've always wanted for my children to be the best that they can be. Maybe now, they will know that as I follow some simple but monumental advice.
