Jason Tsirtsis- Flo Interview

Recommended Posts

Companion piece posted on Flo -- Tsirtsis teaching his sit out.  I thought this was very interesting, not just because this move was up there with Retherford's turns and Snyder's low single as the most reliable moves in recent years (it was so automatic that knowing it was there might in my view have contributed to him becoming overly conservative after his freshman year, believing that between the instant escape and his great conditioning he could always win in overtime if necessary).  

Anyway what I was really struck by was the authoritativeness of Jason's bearing and presentation.  Over the years when he's been interviewed about himself on TV or in the recent Flo walk and talk, he's extremely modest, reserved, shy (even before his personal tragedies he was like this).  But here, when he's not talking about himself but rather talking about his craft, he's direct, concise, commanding, intense. 

His teammates at NU always said he was the hardest worker they'd ever seen, and this interview gives you a taste of what made him a champion, and also what I think is going to make him a very successful coach.
