What a sport does for you, is that it reveals who you are. It will teach you everything, every single thing, the hard way. There is no short cut, there is no diversion. There is only a single-minded vision to be the best at what you do. And so, when you're in the game, be stronger, faster, and bolder. Be competitive, determined and sharp. On the field, you are unapologetically yourself, and you must wear it like your armor. With pride, let every loss from the past become your motivation for the future. Let every nasty injury bring a devious drive to your game. Let every tear and every drop of blood make you ever stronger, ever fiercer. Your team will be your strength, they are all you've got. And while none of us is perfect, together, we can be better. Better than the competition, better than the odds, better than who we used to be.
This winter, unleash your passion for sport. Let it overcome you, and let it bring you glory.
