I love this. There is nothing more attractive than a young young man with manners. This coach deserves kudos. I hope this starts a trend
Bobby Petrino isn’t just putting his players through the usual summer workouts this year. No, he’s also making sure they’re buttoned up at the dining room table.
According to Robbie Neiswanger of ArkansasNews.com, UA’s football players “gathered together for an etiquette dinner designed to help them learn proper practices, procedures and techniques to be comfortable in formal dinner or buffet settings.”
Assistant AD Eric Wood says the training table, er, training is designed to make sure the players are good Hogs on the field and off it:
“Executives, whether it’s in the National Football League or if it’s for a corporate job, are using a meal as an opportunity as part of the interview process. (Petrino) knows that people come from varying backgrounds on the team. So he wanted to make sure that those guys in that situation are comfortable.”
Nothing wrong with that. In fact, we suggest Petrino use the following short film as an aid, too.
No one wants to be a Mr. Bungle.
At least Petrino isn’t having to teach shower etiquette.
