  • Best Football or Life Advice? If your uniform is as clean at the end of the game as it was before it started you didn’t try hard enough. and “Whether you have been there before or not, always WIN with class and dignity. Act like it isn’t the first time.  Remember how it felt when you  failed before you were triumphant.” lastly “If you lose it means you were bested by the other man or the other team. Train harder so it doesn’t happen again. Don’t be a sore loser, just use it as fuel to make them feel next time the way you feel this time.”
