For The Love Of The Game

Be humble

Last minute of the game 

Last minute of fame, of your senior season

Give it all you've got

You put up 20 points a game this season

 

Pass the ball in

Dribble coast to coast

Fake right spin left

Pull up

The ball is in flight

Because who is looking for anyone else in sight

 

Basketball is what we bleed

Waking up every morning

On your off days

That aren't really off

 Cause you’re still out there putting in your own hard work

 

The integrity

Doing what you should when no one is watching

Putting up shot after shot till the daylight is all gone

Going strong all alone

 

But when you do practice,

Do you practice hard?  

Do you practice like it’s your last?

Don’t just shoot don't just go through the motions. 

It’s your time you shine

Spend day in and day out on the grind

 

For the love of the game

The passion

Believe in your self 

Believe in your game

One day they will all be screaming your name

 

This is what we live for

The late nights and early mornings

We live for the nightlife

Cause Ball is life, Right?
