“Joe taught me I could get into my zone anytime. The sessions helped me to play great in baseball and football and really helped me in life.” – Owen, High School All-Conference selection in baseball and football

“I’m really excited about Joe joining my staff at PENN as we begin a new era in Quaker basketball. Joe has worked extensively with my teams at both Cornell and Boston College. He has an ability to get an immediate buy-in from the players about the crucial importance of mental strength training. He leads my guys through Team Building exercises and helps them recreate the experience of being in the zone in both individual and group sessions. He absolutely helps them maximize performance on the court and, perhaps most importantly, his coaching really helps them in the classroom and the game of life.”
– Steve Donahue, New Head Coach, University of Pennsylvania Men’s basketball (2015) Men’s Head Basketball Coach at Cornell University and Boston College, 1999-2014

“Dowling came in and talked to us about the importance of forgetting the last play–whether it was good or bad–and moving on to the next one as a fresh start. That hit home with me.” – Jon Jaques, Starting forward for the 2009-2010 Cornell University Men’s Basketball Team that advanced to the Sweet 16

“I listen to the guided zone before every game, it takes me to that place where I’m really confident and relaxed….Before every At-BAT, I close my eyes and take some deep breaths, while I’m taking my practice swings I imagine myself hitting the ball hard and being successful…”– Mike Costanzo (professional baseball player)
