This blog was designed to aid in the promotion of attitudes that support a more intrinsic purpose behind sports participation, especially in youth, high school and collegiate sports. And to spark interest in my forthcoming book "Becoming a True Champion: Achieving Athletic Excellence From the Inside Out," which has the same general purpose, along with giving athletes the tools they need to become successful.
“Putting forth the effort to accomplish something others believe to be impossible brings with it intrinsic rewards not usually found on the 'easier path'. Facing this type of adversity with determination and will on your side creates the opportunity for achievement not easily seen by doubters.
