Becton, a first-round draft pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, was looking for a training spark as he aimed to better himself ahead of the 2023-24 season, and my job was to prepare him to achieve that reality, push him to reach his full potential as a talented young player, and ultimately position him for long-term success in the league.
