  • Pain is only temporary but victory is forever.
  • Winners don't wait for chances, they take them.
  • When you put on that jersey, the name on the front is more important then the name on the back.
  • You and your opponent want the same thing. The only thing that matters is who works the hardest for it.
  • "You don't always get what you wish for, you get what you work for "
  • If you don't have the desire to play, don't ruin it for those that do.

The objective in any team sport is to transform the group from a mere collection of talented individuals into a highly cohesive unit so that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
