Rochester’s Jeff Butorac sets a positive tone in his first book – Post Bulletin

Rochester – Jeff Butorac A half-dozen years ago, Century had a difficult experience as a boys basketball coach.

Rather than dwell on the experience, he decided to write a book.

Butorac, a Rochester native, was the head coach for the Panthers for two seasons in 2016-17 and 2017-18 before resigning for personal reasons.

“Basically the whole reason I got away from coaching basketball at the turn of the century, I just started dealing with anxiety and some really bad bouts of panic attacks,” Butrock said.

As Butorak learned more about his situation as a coach, he began to understand his mindset and what he could do to help not only himself but others as well.

“After I left I just got into everything about the psychology of the game, about willpower and confidence and all the different things that go into a positive athlete’s mindset,” Butrock said.

He soon found himself writing a book. And now, after two and a half years of working on the project, his book is out. It is titled “The Rivals Within: The Negativity of Silence Within”.

The subject of the book is how the 38-year-old Butoric worked to overcome his anxiety. His book is an attempt to help others overcome their fears, negative thinking concepts and a positive outlook. He hopes that his message can help athletes or people in every area of ​​life.

“We’re all naturally negative, it’s built into our DNA,” Butrock said. “We all have that negative voice, it’s our goal to just silence it. It’s never going to go away completely, but every day we just fight to silence that inner rival.

Butorac’s job is working with athletes on a daily basis. He is one of the tennis pros working at the Rochester Tennis Connection. But he wants to branch out.

“I want to do more than just work with tennis,” he said. “I wanted to work with a lot of different athletes. And the more I wrote the book, the more I realized that it’s not just for athletes.

Butorac enjoys working with athletes, but he wants to speak in front of groups in the future to help spread his positive message.

He said he might consider doing another book “if it gets a warm reception.” His book is currently available on Amazon:
