Its not how big you are. Its how big you play the game.

People don’t play sports because it’s fun. Ask any athlete, most of them hate it, but they couldn’t imagine their life with out it. Its part of them, the love /hate relationship. It’s what they live for.
They live for the practices, parties, cheers, long car rides, tournaments, equipment, water, & Gatorade. They live for the way it feels when they win the game, and knowing those extra sprints were worth it. They live for the way they became a family with their team, they live for the countless songs they sing in their head while practicing all those hours. They live for the competition, they live for the friends, the practices, the memories the pain, it’s who they are.
It’s who we are.
