Do I want the ball?

When the game is on the line, are you backing away from the huddle and avoiding the coach’s eyes or do you want the ball? Neither response is inherently better than the other. There is usually only one ball so each teammate is necessary to help the ball carrier make the play. Which role are you more comfortable with? Some people say they want the ball, but they choke when the critical moment comes. Some people undersell their ability and then step up in the moment. The actual response in the moment always reveals who really wants the ball.
