From Spectator to Motivator
I’ve sat in the stands at football games (which occupied more than half my life) - from peewee league to professional - whether I was cheering on my son, his dad or my grandsons. It didn’t matter what level of play it was, they each had the same passion for the game - for the competition, the comradery, the celebration of championships or bemoaning losses.
Living this "football life" has afforded me extraordinary opportunities, exposure to life’s options and blessings untold. That life filled my personal "playbook" with the wisdom to call an audible, pass, run or, go for the two-point conversion as I lived each day. Yes, I observed the "thrill of victory and the agony of defeat" from the stands and side-lines. Most importantly, I’d beheld strength, courage and purpose. And, those qualities molded me into the person I am today. I got off the bench after merely existing and got into the game of living.
