At the end of practices, before every game and at halftimes for close to 30 years, Johns Hopkins football head coach Jim Margraff would share a simple but fiery message with his team.

Standing near the 50-yard line, his players huddled around him, Margraff pointed out a note or two about the team’s game plan, or about the halftime adjustments the coaches implemented in the locker room.

Then, with his players hyped, jumping around him, he’d shout three simple words.

“Pride and poise!”
