Raised By The Game

I was raised by
Tenacious and goal-oriented
Leading by example
Striving to exceed expectations
“Nothing is handed to you. If you want it
you have to go get it”
Type of role models

I was raised by
Teaching and molding
Apathetic and ignorant
Doing whatever it takes even when
it’s wrong
“Losing ain’t an option”
Type of coaches

I was raised by
Responsibility owning
Playing for each other
Closer than blood
“Lay it all on the line”
Type of teammates

I was raised by
Gut-wrenching and soul-mending
Lesson teaching
Character building
“The first real love of my life”
Owing so much of myself to
Type of game
