The concussion conversation and a dumb ass tweet some guy sent me got me thinking about why football and sports in general are so important. Could you imagine not playing a sport..EVER? Whether you are a runner, football player, basketball, baseball, soccer, softball, cheerleading, gymnastics, volleyball, etc sports dominate our world! Not only in sport but in business! Ask a CEO if 2 candidates for a high ranking job are equal and one played football and the other didn’t, who gets the gig?? Discipline, teamwork, dedication, fight, grit, determination, and on and on those are the qualities and characteristics athletes possess. Playing sports in as important as waking up and breathing every day, it makes our world go round! Some just aren’t athletic and are better at other extracurricular activities but athletics builds character and molds who people are.
