Throughout, this year I have learned a multitude of life lessons, strengthen my ability to work in a team and to depend on my teammates while we all strive to achieve the same goal. The main uniqueness of my community, The George Fox Football Team, is the acronym that we stand for, T.A.P.E, through these four words I have learned many life lessons that has made me the man I am today.
