Team Spirit Stories Rededicated


Dear Friends of Team Spirit stories.  If you are receiving this post first, thank you for tagging along on the journey and subscribing to these tales.  If you are coming into the story of “Jason and The Argonauts” Passages in Youth Football  for the first time- WELCOME!  Please bookmark – Like us on Facebook – or subscribe below for updates to this story  as we move forward into the 2011 spring football season.  What adventure lies ahead?

I wanted to re-post the first dedication of Team Spirit Stories and invite you back into the next chapter – “The Cause of Champions”. Please watch for our Chapter II launch in the coming week.  For now i wish to re-dedicate and refresh the journey with our first post and dedication from last year. I could not have imagined then where the journey is taking us, but i look forward to sharing a recent encounter with a young high school football player who, for me, embodied this spirit and shares the power of his cause for all of our families and players. Stay tuned!


There is something in sport that sets in a boy

the Spirit of the man he can become.

Through challenge and competition,

where once there was the hunt and quest,

the sport of youth becomes his rite of passage.

In a team

he builds the bonds of

family, community and purpose.

As a son

he learns from his coaches-

respect and dedication.

As a brother,

he finds opportunities

to model the qualities of leadership,

sharing with his siblings

that which he exemplifies on the field.

What lies in his sport

is the spirit of dreams

as a champion.

To win as such once,

sets a path of life ahead of him

seeking to reach this honor in all things,

he may pursue in the future.
