There are only 2 things I can control in life, attitude and effort. I play sports year around to gain mass and to build fast twitch muscles I need to explode in playing football. I wrestle, throw in track, and play baseball. With playing sports, I spend a lot of time in the weight room. My coach always said that there is a reason why student comes before athlete in being a student athlete. Get my homework done and pay attention in class, and I get rewarded by being able to play the wonderful, God given sport of football. I believe sports don't build character, they revile it.
