“I think it was just being in the same dressing room as some absolute superstars like that were really special. I sort of leaned on AB a lot. He gave me some great advice along the way. It was just really cool to see how they go about their business out in the middle. There were some really challenging situations out there, but they keep it so simple. Every time I asked a question or asked what they were thinking, it just went back down to stand still, watch the ball, some really simple clear messages. It was pretty cool to know that the best in the business just keep it simple,” said Josh Philippe.
