The great Vince Lombardi once said “Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication, and respect of authority.” My father introduced me to football and coached me from a young age.

Team players don’t do things for themselves, they do it for the benefit of the team. In a team player’s mind, the betterment of the team must come first. No matter who scores a touchdown, goal, basket, or run, a team player has to let go of all individualism and do the right thing for the whole team. In soccer, if a teammate gets open down field and you have an opponent in front of you, a team player would pass it to their open teammate, while an individualist would attempt and juke out the opponent or try and show off and possibly lose the ball.

They believed that I didn’t sincerely want to be apart of the football team.
