Ministry of Sean Lonergan

Former US National Team Player

 
 
 
 
I had a fun practice session with Sean Lonergan this weekend! Sean serves Jesus overseas where he works with others to grow and multiply disciples. He tried out for the Olympic Team in 1996 & 2000, while he came close God used those failures to draw him to Christ.

Beat the Pick-Hitter!

Learn tactics to beat this difficult opponent

 
 
 
 
 
In this article, I’m going to briefly describe the tactics that you should use to beat a pick-hitter.  A pick hitter is usually a rather defensive player who suddenly attacks as a surprise.  In order to best understand your opponent, you need to start off by analyzing him in detail by asking yourself the following questions in regards to your opponent.  You should ask yourself these questions when you are studying your opponent prior to the match or during the first few points of your match.
 

Devastate the Underdog

Learn Proper Preparation

 
 
 
 
 
I estimate that over 50% of upsets could have been avoided!
Let me explain...
 
 
 
 
As soon as the upset happens, there is usually a whirlwind of excusing flying all across the gym.  Some of them are non-sense.  Some of them are legit.
I have often heard excuses like…
“I didn’t warm-up before the match.”
“I thought he was easy; I won 3-0 last time we played.”
“I was just so hungry, that I couldn’t concentrate.”
“I started off the first game just trying out some new fancy shots.”
