“Ability is what you are capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.” –Lou Holtz
This quote is one of my favorites, because it encompasses the true qualities of a great athlete. Ability can only take you so far. I know as an athlete I need to continue to put in the hard work to keep reaching the next level. Motivation is what drives me, setting goals and working to surpass them. A great attitude makes you a better player and an even better teammate! These three qualities are something I try to incorporate every time I step on the field.
I know playing field hockey in college takes a lot of work and dedication. I have been very dedicated in working continuously to improve my skills and game technique. I love this sport not only because it is super competitive, but also because of the great friends I have made along the way!!
