BE A DUDE

EVEN THOUGH GENDER IS JUST A CONSTRUCT

Steve Addazio is an agent of change. A catalyst to push your formerly stagnant program to new and dizzying heights. He's an innovator, and he knows that sometimes a team needs a simple but effective rallying call. That rallying call for Boston College in 2013?

BE A DUDE.

And what being a dude is is being a baller. You know? Just being a real baller. Just being a dude.
Be great. Be a baller. Be great at what you are. Just don't be average.

- Steve Addazio, Head Coach, Boston College Football, A Job For Which He Is Paid Actual American Dollars
