Greg Gurenlian answered the call, and after we got through a little Faceoff Academy National Showcase recap, we got into some of the details on how the world of the face off man is rapidly changing.

While the exact number of hours is still up for debate, and further statistical analysis is needed, I am confident that the overall point stands: The truly great put in the hours and the effort in order to be truly great.
