  1. One of the all-time greats. Small school coaches don’t get the money and fame of those at the big schools. Sully is a master at applying the lessons of sport to to the lessons of life. I didn’t play for Sully but I do recall 5:45 a.m. baseball practices and what that taught about discipline, work ethic and the correlation of effort and results.
