We bust ours, to kick yours

I play the game, I play it smart, my energy comes from the heart. I use my head, I use my feet. WHY? because I’m 100% Athlete..
Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. (Robert Collier)

Life is full of risks. You can’t steal second with one foot on first. (Genisis Heath)

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will. (Vincent T. Lombardi)

Hero’s get remembered, but legends never die ~(Babe Ruth in the Sandlot)

athlete is a normal person with the gift of an undying passion to be the best and achieve greatness.

“Are you crying?! There’s no crying in baseball!” (A League of Their Own)

Courage is the discovery that you may not win and trying when you know you may lose.

Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That’s what little girls are made of.

Even when you’ve played the game of your life, it’s the feeling of teamwork that you’ll remember. You’ll forget the plays, the shots, and the scores. But you’ll never forget your teammates.

Love the game. Love the game for the pure joy of accomplishment. Love the game for everything it can teach you about yourself. Love the game for the feeling of belonging to a group endeavoring to do its best. Love the game for being involved in a team whose members can’t wait to see you do your best. Love the game for the challenge of working harder than you ever have at something and then harder than that. Love the game because it takes all team members to give it life. Love the game because at its best, the game tradition will include your contributions. Love the game because you belong to a long line of fine athletes who have loved it. It is now your legacy. Love the game so much that you will pass on your love of the game to another athlete who has seen your dedication, your work, your challenges, your triumphs… and then that athlete will, because of you, love the game.

Every team requires unity. A team has to move as one unit, one force, with each person understanding and assisting the roles of his teammates. If the team doesn’t do this, whatever the reason, it goes down in defeat. You win or lose as a team, as a family

Nothing is work unless you’d rather be doing something else.

Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. (Lou Holtz)

Don’t be content with average because average is just as close to the bottom as it is to the top. (Danielle Ballentine)

Sports remain a great metaphor for life’s more difficult lessons. It was through athletics that many of us first came to understand that fear can be tamed; that on a team the whole is more than the sum of its parts; and that the ability to be heroic lies, to a surprising degree, within. (Susan Casey)

Some people ask me how I run so fast; I say what do you do when you hear a gun?

Ah, the glories of women’s sports: the camaraderie. The quiet dignity. The proud refusal to buy into traditional stereotypes of beauty. (Sports Illustrated For Women)

When you win, say nothing. When you lose, say less. (paul brown)

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. (Michael Jordan)

Victory is what happens when thousands of hours of practice meet with one moment of opportunity.

A game begins the moment you forget you are playing

Athletes are driven by commitment. To their sport. To themselves. To excellence itself. Commitment fuels the extra mile, the final set, the last quarter, the sprint to the line. Going on when the body begs to stop.

You can either throw in the towel, or use it to wipe off your sweat.
You opponent, in the end, is never really the player up to bat, the girl in center field, or the team in the other dugout, or even the ball you must catch. Your opponent is yourself, your negative internal voices, your level of determination.

Team – you don’t always have to like each other, but you do have to be able to count on each other.

Gentlemen, it is better to have died as a small boy than to fumble this football (John Heisman)
