This is the college football season here in America. It is winding down to a climactic series of teams knocking the daylights out of each other over an oval ball. Each college that has a football team has masses of followers who either attended that college, had a child who went there, or just really like the school for some reason.
You have very young men playing on these football teams (18-24 years old usually). They have not reached their peak maturity levels and yet are expected to play and use maturity way beyond their years. This means that they are not prepared for the “pressure to win” that hits them during the long fall/winter seasons….especially if their team is either winning or losing big time!
At times it appears to be a demeaning and demoralizing experience for these young men, and yet the majority of them survive and consider it a great opportunity.
The MAGIC in winning is what the coaches and players have to work out for their individual teams. So WHO always wins the games?
The ONES WHO WIN WANT TO WIN THE MOST! They work harder getting prepared for the game, they think about it constantly, and they picture themselves winning the trophy GAME BALL!
WHO wins anything? The ones who work the hardest, play the hardest and lastly, THOSE who WANT IT THE MOST!!!! And that is what puts the MAGIC into anything!
