Couldn't agree more.
I know apples/oranges...but my dad was a high school football coach that was famous for getting high performance out of kids that couldn't play for most BIG high schools. He would always say, "There's no measurables for HEART". And somehow his teams would always make it deep into state playoffs, rarely with a kid who was good enough/big enough/fast enough to go on to college.
He had more than his fair share of offers to coach in college, but always deferred saying, "I'd run off all the assholes, and play the guys who love the game and will bust their ass to get better. I'd be fired in 2 seasons."
Sounded like those 3-stars you allude to.
