Sun beating down. I can almost feel each sun ray driving into my skin. Cleats tied up. Ball at my feet.
Opponent’s coach says, “This is our biggest rival.” …Great, more pressure.
They have beaten us in the past. This is going to be a tough game.
Whistle blows. Move.
Their defense is perfect. We move, they move. It’s like a dance.
We will not stop! We will not quit! It’s hard to beat someone who never quits!
Wait…did we get through their wall? We did!
Go! Go! Go!
