West Bend East Athletic Director took to the hallways of East High School to track down student-athletes and coaches to find the answer to 3 simple questions in their prep for homecoming:

  1.  What does it mean to be an East Suns?
  2. What does homecoming mean to you?
  3. What takeaway did you get from the Brian Cain presentation?

These questions, although the seem simple can many different things to many different students and coaches.  It is all about the perspective.  The idea of asking these questions is to see if students and coaches realize the true meaning of homecoming?  The true meaning of homecoming to me as an athletic director goes way beyond the football game, the pep rally and the dance.  The meaning of homecoming to me, is the collaboration of a community.  To celebrate alumni success and to recognize traditions that happen within the schools and the community.  Homecoming is a great way to provide  true meaning of school spirit.

As for what it means to be an East Sun, to me that is a simple question outlined in our vision.  As an East Suns we Earn Everything.  We earn our respect, we earn our victories we earn our grades.  We are accountable for everyday choices we make in and out of the classroom.  Everyday an East Sun is selfless.  Selfless to help others and to put others and a team before their individual self.  To me an East Sun is being physically and mentally tough.  Knowing how to refocus when adversity sets in and knowing how to breathe during pressure situations.  Lastly, being an East Suns means being successful, uniting and striving to be the best version of ourselves everyday.

As most of you know, Brian Cain has been instrumental in shaping many professional athletes to who they are today.  The biggest take away from the presentation in my opinion is make yourself 1% better today then you were yesterday, but not better then you will be tomorrow.  Learn how to be in the present moment and not focus on anything else but that moment.  If your mind starts thinking about other things, you won’t perform at your best.  Being in the present moment means taking one play at a time and getting better then the last play with your attitude, effort and focus.
