17 Sep 120. Character First Coaching | David Peavy | Duncanville HS
In our latest episode, Colton is live with Head Basketball Coach David Peavy from Duncanville HS. Coach David Peavy is the new Head Coach at Duncanville High School. He was previously at Houston Dekaney where he coached them to a 34-4 record losing to Jesuit in the Class 6A Regional II Semifinals. They were also regional semifinalists in 2017 when they lost to Dallas Skyline after a 27-8 season.
Coach shares a little bit about his journey from leaving his past role as a coach in Houston to his current role and what that looked like stepping into an already developed program.
Some key takeaways from this episode:
- Watch your actions because they’ll turn into habits, which affect your success
- The power of the group is stronger than the individuals
- As a coach, don’t make it so much about you, make it about THEM
Coach finishes up the episode by giving listeners a bit of advice he would have given himself when he first started his coaching career. Coach Peavy stresses the importance of not making it about you, the coach, but making it about them. It’s so easy to get caught up in your season record and pushing your athletes hard in practice, but while that is important, it’s necessary to not lose sight of developing them as people as well as athletes.
