Do you remember why you play or has it been too long?Is it because you worked so hard to get where you are,or because you love to be part of your team?Would it be because you absolutely love the competition,or do you love the anxiety before a game?
Or is it because you don't want to let anyone down ever,including yourself?Is it because you love the sound when your foot comes in contact with the ball, or because you would honestly rather be on the field than anywhere else in the world?
Somewhere behind the athlete you've become, the hours of practice you put in, the coaches who pushed you,the teammates that believed in you, the fans who've cheered for you, and the parents who've supported you
there is a little girl who fell in love with the game,dedicated herself and never looked back.
Play for that girl.
