If a team is to bring its dream of winning a national championship to life, there can’t be any off days and there definitely cannot be any wasted practices.For the Wisconsin men’s soccer team, senior captain Blake Succa is the glue that holds them together; the motivator that keeps the team focused on its overall goal; and the man doing all of the little things in order to make sure the Badgers function like the well-oiled machine they have proven to be.But Succa almost wasn’t a Badger.“Honestly, when I initially heard that Wisconsin was interested in me coming here to play soccer, I only said yes just to keep my options open,” Succa said. “They weren’t high up on my list.”The Lewisberry, Pa., native ended up coming to Madison on an official visit, met with the team and coaching staff and saw what Madison was all about.“Once I saw that and took into consideration the combination of academics, athletics and the city as a whole I couldn’t say no,” Succa said.And Badger head coach John Trask is glad he didn’t.“He’s a tough kid with a great personality,” Trask said of Succa. “He makes everyone on the team better in practice and that is something you cannot replace.”Trask continued his praise of Succa by saying, “Where other players find reasons to be off the field, Blake Succa finds reasons to be on it.”A frequent starter on the back line for the Badgers, Succa gives everything he can during matches, but he knows his greatest asset to this team comes during practices.“In practice I definitely have a bit more of an edge,” Succa said. “I just try and make sure that if I see a guy not into it mentally — I have those days as well — I try and make sure that he is on the same page. I try to lead by example instead of barking at the guys, even though I do that sometimes.”Leading by example is often a characteristic of great team captains, which is why Trask named Succa the team’s fourth senior captain at the beginning of the season. Succa said he believes he has always been a type of leader on the team, but once Trask told him he had earned the official title of team captain it made him even more confident in practices and games because he now had the backing of the coach and his teammates.The decision to name Succa a captain was not just Trask’s decision, it was also the whole team’s decision.“When I went to all of the guys and asked them their opinion on naming Succa the fourth team captain, it was an easy choice,” Trask said. “There was no hesitation whatsoever from any of the guys. Some of them even said that they thought he should have been named captain the year before.”The intensity the 5-foot-11, 175-pound defender brings during practice and games is hard to match, it’s hard to question that. What is also unquestionable is the level of respect and professionalism Succa carries with him off the field and after games.That level of sportsmanship is part of the reason why Succa was named a Big Ten Sportsmanship Award honoree in 2011 and why his teammates and players from opposing teams all have so much respect and admiration for Succa and his game.“In games, everybody needs to come in with the understanding that once you step in between the lines and the clock starts ticking, the guys you are playing against become the enemy,” Succa said. “You are going to battle against them, they’re going to battle against you and some trash talking will go on, but you have to understand that it’s just a game.“Once that clock hits 90 minutes, you have to shake his hand and congratulate him on a good battle.”

Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. September 30, 2016 4 min read Robots can do many things humans can do, often better. They mix cocktails, stand in for security guards and dispose of bombs. One thing we’re sure they can never do better: care for our kids.They can’t snuggle, kiss boo-boos or exhibit unconditional love, not like a mom or dad or child care worker can. But that didn’t stop the makers of iPal from creating a creepy nanny robot that they’re billing as a babysitter. It’s a 3-foot-tall talking bot, complete with a surveillance cam, a touch screen tablet and tons of apps, you know, to keep your kid occupied and happy when you can’t.Avatarmind, with offices in China and Silicon Valley, designed iPal to be a “friendly companion to play with and talk to naturally.” The company’s humanoid mother’s helper can “dance, tell stories and play games.” If all that isn’t enough to keep your kid busy and quiet — and out of your hair — no worries, the robot also enables them to live-chat with their real-life buddies, swap videos and peruse social media, all without in-person parental supervision.Related: This Startup Employs Robots That Bake Pizza En Route for DeliveryLike a real babysitter, the pastel-trimmed iPal learns what your child likes and dislikes over time and, unlike a real babysitter, and constantly scrapes the cloud to “increase its knowledge on subjects of interest to your child.” The thing even plays “rock, paper, scissors” using its hard plastic jointed fingers. Aw, what a gregarious, doting little droid.Oh, and should your mini-me ever ask the rolling machine heavy kid-questions such as, “Why is the sun hot?” you bet iPal has a pre-loaded answer on deck. Let’s hope your little one doesn’t ask it where he or she came from. We’re just guessing here, but that’s probably a doozie that iPal isn’t cut out for, which is a shame, because the birds-and-bees talk is an awkward topic to broach. Best to leave it to a bot.Speaking of parenting tasks that suck, iPal understands that most mundane daily parental duties are also a drag. We’re talking morning and bedtime routine and hygiene stuff, such as nagging your kids to wake up, get dressed, brush their teeth and wash their germ-filled hands before meals. Don’t fret, it has apps for all that.Related: Get Your Digital Drink on With Robot-Crafted CocktailsIn case you’re worried that iPal lacks the feels, Avatarmind assures it has the sensors for that. After all, “iPal is not a cold, unfeeling machine, but a great companion for your child.” Its handy-dandy “emotion management system” automatically detects and reacts to your wee one’s feelings. That’s because it’s programmed to mirror your kid’s mood when he or she is happy and to cheer him or her up when sad.Finally, artificially intelligent algorithms and robotic canned empathy statements to the rescue. What more could a kid ask for?Parents looking to save a buck on a real-life babysitter will have to wait to find out how much all this hard-wired plastic convenience will set them back. We can’t imagine it’ll be cheap, what with pretty much a good chunk of your child’s upbringing in its metal-jointed robot hands and all.Parenting. Why trouble yourself with all that drama when there’s a bot that can do the duty for you? How Success Happens Listen Now
