A great leader will not be a leader of followers. He or she will be a leader or leaders.
Being selected as a captain last year was one of the most rewarding happenings of my lacrosse career. Many, if not the majority, of my teammates were captains or, at the very least, leaders on their college teams. Many had been on multiple professional rosters. They’d all been around the game at a high level for a while. To me, being designated as a captain meant that I’d earned respect as a leader of leaders.
