Patriots coach Bill Belichick delivered the commencement address for 127 graduating students and their friends and family Friday morning at Suffield Academy in Connecticut.
Belichick, a parent of graduating senior Brian Belichick, stressed the importance of working hard and being a team player in his address, reminding students that over the past 10 years, no team in any one of the four major sports could boast an MVP on their roster.
‘There’s no ‘I’ in team, but there is an ‘I’ in win,’ he said, according to this Masslive,com story. ‘That stands for individual achievement. You need to do your job, because without it, there’s no leadership.’
Belichick told students that they should always do what’s right for the team, whether or not they want to do it.
‘The greatest leaders I’ve coached just go out there and do their job with a good attitude,’ he said.
