“In football they say ‘run in the crease.’ It’s one of my favorite tactics when everything is coming at you and there is this seemingly impenetrable wall. You only have a few options. You can try to run around it, or you can go backwards and throw a pass over it. But a lot of times the best plays - the ones that are the most fun to watch - are when the running back just goes right into it and finds the crease in the defense. You find the one place where there is a tiny little opening and you can make progress amidst the very people who were trying to stop you. I love the looks of that play. I think it’s a great way to go as a leader.”
