- 06.06.2019 Alex Cora: Caring Coach, Champion Coach
Having honored our 2016 Triple-Impact Competitor Finalists in a pregame ceremony at Fenway Park with the Boston Red Sox on August 31, each month, for the next three months, PCA-NE will spotlight five of the high school scholar athletes who have been recognized as Triple-Impact Competitors and Finalists for its Triple-Impact Competitor scholarship.
Each of these Triple-Impact Competitor Finalists were selected based on their essays explaining how they meet three criteria: personal mastery (making oneself better), leadership (making one’s teammates better), and honoring the game (making the game better). All of these Triple-Impact Competitor Finalists have grade point averages of at least 2.5, and provided testimonials from a school administrator, a coach, and at least one from an individual who is familiar with the student-athlete and able to speak to his/her embodiment of the Triple-Impact Competitor principles.

Cameron’s motto, ‘it is not practice that makes perfect, but perfect practice that makes perfect’ is a great lesson for all players, and he understands the strong role opportunity plays in athletic success, and a fear of mistakes creates fewer opportunities.
