Garrett addresses Dodgers prospects

USC athletic director and former Heisman Trophy winner Mike Garrett was today’s guest speaker as the second week of the Dodgers’ annual winter development program for top prospects got under way at Dodger Stadium.
“He was outstanding,” said Dodgers GM Ned Colletti, who has developed a close friendship with Garrett over the years. “Having grown up in L.A. and followed the Dodgers since he was a young kid, and with what he has helped establish at USC, he was one of the most poignant speakers we have had in the two years we have had the program. His message was about teamwork, mental toughness and the ingredients you need to be successful at a high level.”
