"It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but it's the size of the fight in the dog"
" The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"
To run an honest organization that teaches young men and women first, to understand the true meaning of what it takes to be a student athlete, secondly, to develop personally as productive and influential members of society , and lastly to teach them what it takes to be the very best at whatever they choose to embark on.
