Last week, while sitting at a varsity basketball game, I had the chance to visit with a group of former students that I had in my eighth grade strength and conditioning class last year. These student-athletes are now high school freshman and have had a really terrific year… athletically and academically… at our high school.

The conversation centered on their successful first year, and their anticipation of great things to come... they really are a gifted class, by the way.

One of the students made the comment along the lines of “We’ve got this, Coach… we are going to be the class to turn things around at this school

I replied, “keep working… you will

He came back with “That’s all you’ve got coach… keep working?”

Yes”, I said, “it really is that simple… and that difficult

It really is that simple…

Keep working….
Keep chopping wood…
Keep pushing…
Keep grinding…
Keep plugging away…
Keep driving…

And really that difficult…

when you start to get pulled different directions…
when you lose sight of your goals…
when academic rigor gets tough…
when cars, and jobs, and relationships start stealing your time…
when your alarm goes off at 5:30 am during summer “vacation”…
when injuries happen…
when you and your classmates get hit with the million different distractions that are always lurking… just waiting for you… during your high school career.

Keep working.
