"Winning is not a trophy. It is the reason it’s given.
Winning is not a bulb on a scoreboard, it’s the game that lights it up.
Winning can be talent, if it’s talent developed.
It can even be an injury, if it’s an injury overcome.
Winning can be patience, if it is patience with a purpose.
Winning is respecting the game enough to fight for every inch it allows and respecting your opponent enough to hold nothing back.
Winning can mean leaving, if it’s done with class.
It can mean starting over, if you can see the fresh start.
Winning can mean pain, if it’s pain that makes you stronger.
Winning can look like stubbornness until it’s shown to be persistence.
It can look like doubt, if it’s doubt kept out of the heart.
It can be a record, but it looks more like the will to break it.
Winning can look like a leader, if they are one worth following.
It can look like losing, if losing fuels desire.
It can be a number on a jersey, if it’s one people want to wear.
Winning can look like humility, if there is truly something to be proud of.
Winning is loyalty, to the game, to the fans, and to an ideal.
Winning can be a legacy, if it is a legacy worth writing.
Winning can look like work, hard, lonely work.
It can look like one game, or a year, or a career.
Winning is sportsmanship, whether it’s recognized or not.
Winning is not a trophy. It is the reason it’s earned.
