The Kid On the End of the Bench

“To The Kid On the End Of The Bench”
via WSJ, author unknown

Champions once sat where you’re sitting, kid.

The Football Hall of Fame (and every other Hall of Fame) is filled with names of people who sat, week after week, without getting a spot of mud on their well-laundered uniforms.
Generals, senators, surgeons,
prize-winning novelists, professors,
business executives all started on the end of a bench, too.

Don’t sit an study your shoe tops.
Keep your eye on the game.
Watch for defensive lapses.
Look for offensive opportunities.
If you don’t think you’re in a great spot, wait until you see how many would like to take it away fro you at next spring practice.
What you do from the bench this season could put you on the field next season, as a player, or back in the grandstand as a spectator.
