I think the departures we have seen (voluntary, not the katoa incidents we have experienced in the recent past) will continue to be a part of our program under Hawk and while it hurts our football team it shouldn't be seen only as a bad thing. Hawkins seems to recruit good young men, not just excellent football players but men with bright futures, a lot of drive and intelligence. Contrast that with many of the recruits who seemingly only have football talent going for them (wow) and I think you end up with guys that will from time to time leave a program. I know loyalty and following through on a committment is a key element of a guy but so is constantly questioning your situation and seeing how you can prepare yourself for your future. Josh is leaving to, at least reportedly, pursue his future outside of football. Some kids in other programs, with less going for them and a coaching staff that doesn't encourage them to excel in all aspects of their lives can't afford that kind of thinking. They have to make football happen perfectly or they have nothing. I think we will continue to see a small number of guys leave our program as the staff encourages them to be well rounded and their skills outside of football drive them in different directions. This will continue to hurt our football team a bit but I think we can recover and I think it is an indicator of the type of men we are creating/fostering in our program. Am I making any sense?
