Welcome to HITG
Covering the mental engineering of great athletes and performance.
|Brandon Sneed||May 25|
Welcome to Head in the Game.
HITG for short.
This is a weekly newsletter built on the concept of my book Head in the Game: The Mental Engineering of the World’s Greatest Athletes.
My goal here is simple: Keep learning about what helps great athletes with the mental side of performance, share what I think you’ll find useful, and tell great stories.
I’ll publish something every Tuesday.
Thanks for being here.
I’m author and journalist Brandon Sneed. My most recent book is Sooner: The Making of a Football Coach. A Pulitzer Prize winning author called it “the sports book of 2020.” In the past, I’ve been a writer-at-large for Bleacher Report’s B/R Mag (R.I.P.), and I’ve written for ESPN, Outside, GQ, SLAM, and more. I’ve been a Livingston Award finalist and some of my stories have been notable selections in Best American Sports Writing. Now, I’m working on a couple books and doing freelance work for Sports Illustrated.
