AUSTIN, Texas — After the first day of practice for the Texas Longhorns Football, Sarkisian was asked about his quarterbacks in hopes there was a sliver of knowledge that could be gleaned who may be the front runner: Quinn Ewers or Hudson Card. Sarkisian was asked if he looks very strongly on how they carry themselves?

Sarkisian nodded yes and said, “for sure,” but then did not really agree with the full question of a quarterback’s body language that would suggest that this was there team.

Sarkisian further defined what he is looking for in body language saying,

“Yes, I look for body language, but sometimes body language is ownership. There is a level of accountability that’s taking responsibility for your own actions. If you miss the throw, are you willing to own it and let the receiver know? Sometimes that is as important as having a lot of bravado and a lot of confidence, because, that is, a lot of confidence...that you are willing to accept responsibility for a missed play.”

There is a book on Amazon by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin called Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win. The book outlines in great detail what exactly taking ownership looks like at a high level. After reading the book, it likely will change how you go through life.

Based on Sarkisian’s remarks, he may have read the book.

I like exploring the why's and have three objectives. First is to give value to those who would spend time with our content. Second is to be respectful of others and for the opportunity to tell a positive story about all of the Texas Longhorns teams, players, and coaches regardless of their record. Lastly, to put wind in the sails of others using the Horns Illustrated platform. Life is GOOD!
