Have you ever talked or spent time with someone who seemed wiser than he or she should be? Well I had the great pleasure of speaking and interviewing someone like that on my Lacrosse & Sport Podcast this week.
Marcus Holman is an American professional lacrosse player for the Ohio Machine , the 2017 MLL Champions. Holman was born and raised in Baltimore, MD. He was an attackman for the University of North Carolina Tar Heels and had started in 52 of UNC’s 62 games (84%) in the last four years. He was UNC’s all-time leading scorer until Joey Sankey surpassed him during the 2015 season. He joined the Ohio Machine in 2013 and was named the MLL Offensive Player of the Year.
Marcus Holman scored four in a row would make the Ohio Machine the MLL Champions for the first time in program history.
Marcus and I met last summer at the lacrosse camp I run in Florida with my friend and business partner Roger Welton. We hired Marcus to come and share his lacrosse wisdom with our campers. Marcus was a respectful, humble, but very focused individual who has a high standard for excellence and accomplishment that transcended to the players. His ability to connect, coach and inspire everyone around him was nothing less than admirable. I immediately felt a connection and admiration for my new friend and the star lacrosse player who is almost half my age.
So why do I want to share this interview with you and what is there for you to gain from this? It starts with the saying that many of you have heard from my lips or read from some post that I shared, “How you do one thing, is how you do everything.” In our interview with Marcus, he shares the winning formula for his success on and off the lacrosse field, his daily habits and routines that fuel his desire to be better, and his passion for living life and playing lacrosse at a high standard. Lessons all of us can learn from regardless of what you do, where you’re from or what age you’re at.
Marcus left me inspired, but also motivated me to be better and achieve more in my life, so I figured I would pay it forward so it could do the same for you.
I hope you enjoy the podcast and gain the similar motivations I had from the shares of Marcus Holman, a professional lacrosse player and young man who is wise beyond his years.
Yours in health and fitness,
