I couldn’t have said it better myself, so I’m quoting a fellow teacher from “back in the day” at Grant-Deuel School, Revillo, SD.
“No matter what sport you are watching at the high school level you are watching kids play for the love of the game knowing the highest reward they can realize from it is that they did the best they could and walked away knowing that they left it all out there.
To the high school athletes, I salute you. You play the game for the right reasons……..do your job, play your position, and above all…..do the work.
Oh, and one more thing……D UP……if they don’t score…..we can’t lose.”
