Sam’s the man

The fiery Gil­more is known for be­ing vo­cal with his play­ers but he doesn’t have to get af­ter McCloskey.

“He’s a great leader,” Gil­more said. “What I like about him is he works re­ally, re­ally hard all of the time. When Sam falls short in even the slight­est of ways, Sam is his own big­gest critic. He’s very self-aware. Hav­ing that self-aware­ness al­lows him to im­prove on any­thing.

“He’ll never fall short in a ma­jor way, but there’s al­ways some­thing you can do bet­ter and those sub­tle points of foot­ball are the ar­eas that Sam wor­ries about.”

Gil­more said that McCloskey is a pop­u­lar but not be­cause he is loud.

“He doesn’t have an ego,” Gil­more said. “He’s pop­u­lar be­cause of how he con­ducts him­self. He sets an ex­am­ple … the right ex­am­ple.”
