Quote Appearing on print:"
I often sit and wonder why it has taken the world so long to notice my athletic abilities. This is not to say I have been considered invisible in the world of athletics, but not always treated as an equal. Though much of my life has revolved around athletics, not many have noticed the pride I have taken in being the best possible player I can be. Have I not worked as hard, sweated as much, or felt any less in my heart the realities behind what competitive athletics are all about? Have I not sacrificed in much the same way all trivial things in life by offering my life to a game I could not live without? These two questions I have asked myself, questions with only one answer: Yes I have. It's been stated, "Fulfillment of an athlete's soul is achieved through understanding that he cannot live without competitive athletics," or that this "Old School Athlete must Live To Play." If this is true, then I can say I know there is one other absolute truth in life: That I've been an Old School Athlete, proving myself athletically time and again. Too bad it's taken this long for the rest of the world to understand that I, too, represent the quintessential athlete; and that I, Too, Live To Play."
