Brad McCoy shares stories and tips with East Texans

Posted: Updated:

Brad McCoy, father of NFL quarterback Colt McCoy, gave a presentation in Longview Tuesday night about how to perform better and achieve more. 

The former winning high school coach says success is a team effort that starts at home with your family.

The Longview ISD Foundation hosted McCoy at the Melton Performing Arts Center at Longview High School. 

McCoy spoke with the audience about how to form successful teams, whether those teams are families, churches, schools, or companies. He believes preparing children for the path ahead, rather than preparing the path for them, is one of the keys to success. 

"It takes a village and we've heard that all of our lives. We want to surround our kids with good people and good mentors and that's what we try to do through this mission is really work with teachers, and parents, and coaches all over the country so we can be the best we can be to raise the best population that we can raise," McCoy said Tuesday night.

He says another important thing people should focus on is spending time with their families. He says slowing down and making time for each other is important in today's fast paced world.
