All of the personal experiences and wisdom are given to Ted in order to justify how lucky he is to even be playing a collegiate sport and that he should be grateful for the skills that the game is teaching
Team players have started to reduce in the modern sports era. Many players have become self-centered, even in team sports. High school athletes always want their names in the paper or want to get acknowledged by coaches or friends, but true team players do things that many people do not see. They may lead by example during practice or do little things that make a difference in the game. Linemen, on a football team, are great examples of this because the quarterback, running backs, and wide receivers get all the credit for great plays and touchdowns, while linemen have to block the three-hundred-pound man in front of them every time, or the play will get blown up.
It is also more common for athletes who play football or basketball to go pro than in any other college sport. Athletes who play football or basketball are at a higher risk of career ending injuries.

Take the super bowl, for example, I mean sure it’s about football, but what about the cheerleaders on the side lines.

These kids go on to join the NBA, NFL, NPSL, or other large professional leagues. Athletes will tell the press over and over again who their favorite athlete was growing and how that inspired them to be like their athlete.
