  • "When the going gets tough, the tough get going"

    You don't win a championship every year. You don't cruise through every season. It's not always a walk in the ball park. From the past four years that I have played for the team this last year has been the most challenging. We were hungry to set things right from the previous season after a painful championship loss. Things don't always go the same. I have never had a season where the weather condition were this unfortunate, the injuries too often, and that tiny bit of luck you always need gone. It was frustrating coming out of games and hearing that you deserved more. It's frustrating when you dominate games and still don't go away with a victory. It's frustrating when key players get banned from the league. It's frustrating not seeing the fruits of your labor. It's frustrating when the injuries are that many that you don't have enough players to start a game.

    However, the amount this team has grown is incredible. There was no hiding. Players had no choice but to step up and lead the team. There was no room for teammate arguments. We were called to be "one" no matter who was on the field. It could be our worse string or our all stars.

    And I'm thankful for this season cause because of it I have gained numerous brothers that will always have their door open for me and I for them.
