I played basketball and soccer my freshman year in high school.
Being a good teammate is when you try to sprint down a ball that everyone thinks is going out of bounds. But you go after it anyways and you get it.
I've worked too hard and too long to let anything stand in the way of my goals. I will not let my teammates down and I will not let myself down.
I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.
I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion.
True champions aren't always the ones that win, but those with the most guts.
I could sit there and eat pasta all day long and not worry about it when I was younger, and now I really have to focus on making sure I set a good example for my kids.
You can't just beat a team, you have to leave a lasting impression in their minds so they never want to see you again.
