Sport Psychologists to Aid Miami Dolphins for Game Preparation


After practice Monday, Mike Pouncey went through his normal routine.

He showered, dressed, spoke to the media and then left the locker room for a meeting.

The catch: His appointment wasn’t with the Dolphins’ line coach or his offensive coordinator.

It was with the team of health professionals employed by the franchise to get the most out of its players — mentally as well as physically.

Stephen Ross has directed his organization to find non-traditional ways to improve the team’s performance, and mental health — once a taboo subject around the league — is part of the initiative.

The Dolphins have contracted the work out to Mastery Technologies, an Oklahoma-based outfit led by Curt Cronin, a former Navy Seal, and Dr. Jay Ferraro — a partnership packaged as “the Seal and the Shrink.”
