Temple quarterback and The Inner Game

Here is a link to a great article by Matt Gelb, Philadelphia Inquirer Staff Writer.

When Al Golden handed Vaughn Charlton his two summer reading books, the redshirt junior quarterback was confused.

Golden, Temple’s fifth-year head coach, had Charlton read Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect, by Bob Rotella, and The Inner Game of Tennis, by W. Timothy Gallwey. He wanted Charlton to learn how to relax. In Charlton’s time as a starter during his freshman and sophomore seasons, he let a bad play affect him more than it should have.

“At first, I really didn’t understand it,” Charlton said. “But once I started reading, I could relate them back to football and other situations in life.”
