STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford Football and The Cardinal Channel, the creative video production team of Stanford Athletics, today released the 11th episode of "How We Do It," the 15-week original video series that takes viewers inside all angles of the Cardinal Football program.
Episode 11, "The Technician," explores the principles and actions of the renowned Technician lifestyle led by Cardinal players.
"We define a Technician as a guy who concentrates on the factors he can control," says Sports Performance Coordinator Shannon Turley. "Things like technique, effort, attitude, mental discipline - all of the intangibles which essentially take no talent to master."
The talent development and on-field performance seen for Stanford players the last six years draws significantly from a pervasive Technician culture created by Turley. The Technician is detailed and disciplined in all actions from the breakfast he eats to the technique of his weight lifting to the activation of his body before workouts.
