Strong alone. Unstoppable together.
What do I fear?
I fear stagnation and lack of progress. I fear never reaching my potential and being average. I fear being forgotten…the past…yesterday’s news. I fear giving up and being passed by, going softly into that good night. I fear letting down those I love, letting myself down. I fear settling, giving in to the “that’s just the way it is” mindset. I fear dying without leaving my mark. I fear not feeling fears anymore and just floating along.
Prepare for combat. – Nike
Play with heart.
Play like you’ve been there before. Even If you haven’t.
The first hit of the game. Leaving it all on the field. Team First. A Battle Field. A street fight. The feeling you get when you lay someone out. The Silence before the storm. The prayer in the end zone. Self discipline. Stands full of people just to watch you. FOOTBALL IS EVERYTHING. Months training. Working through the pain. All for the players who wear the uniform beside you. Practice in 100 degree heat. Football is all you can think about 24/7. The silence on the bus. Crowd so loud, you barely hear yourself think. No excuses.
