We all know Pollyannas who just assume that things “take care of themselves”and “everything works out in the end.”
But we all know that’s not how it works. You just can’t close your eyes, make a wish, and problems are solved.
It takes people to make things work out. Two of those fixers are Jason Cvercko and Josh Omura.
When the Warriors had to fill certain positions, Cvercko and Omura initiated the search. And when a couple players did not meet eligibility requirements, they initiated very, very fast searches.
They also work on making sure that recruits know the process does not end on signing day. There are applications to fill, grades and test scores that need to be met, and prepping for life — for many — that is an ocean away.
During the season, they work on travel, practice and game-day accommodations, and dozens of other duties that fall into their area.
Cvercko recently was promoted to chief of staff, a position that comes with a raise but not more free time. Omura is officially an intern, but he has several other responsibilities, including in-house recruiting.
A lot of people deserve credit for the Warriors’ turnaround. Cvercko and Omura are among them.
