Commentary:

A Lesson I learned is hard work always pays-off. It helped me to not take any opportunity for granted. It encouraged me to give my best at everything I do in life and believe in myself.

Parents, Teachers and coaches told me “I could do whatever I want to do, if I wanted to do it bad enough.”

They inspired me to give my very best every play in every meet or game. Hard work, discipline with focused effort will take you very far in sports and life.

Glory to God for great parents, family, teachers, and coaches!!
