Being a good teammate is when you try to sprint down a ball that everyone thinks is going out of bounds. But you go after it anyways and you get it.
The backbone of success is...hard work, determination, good planning, and perserverence.
I've worked too hard and too long to let anything stand in the way of my goals. I will not let my teammates down and I will not let myself down.
The vision of a champion is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion, when nobody else is looking.
I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.
Failure happens all the time. It happens every day in practice. What makes you better is how you react to it.
A winner is that person who gets up one more time than she is knocked down.
I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion.
Celebrate what you've accomplished, but raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed.
Somewhere behind the athlete you've become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have pushed you is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back... play for her.
