“Sports and other forms of vigorous physical activity provide educational experience which cannot be duplicated in the classroom. They are an uncompromising laboratory in which we must htink and act quickly and efficiently under pressure and then force us to meet our own inadequacies face to face - and do something about them - as nothing else does.
In any athletic activity we are thrown upon our own resources to succeed or fail in the face of a strong and immediate challenge. Sports resemble life in a capsule form and the participant quickly learns that his preformance depends upon the development of strength, stammina, self-discipline and a sure and study judgement.”
“Our guys in practice can't even duplicate what they do because they're athletic, they're quicker. You see an opening, it's there, and you've got to thread the needle because they do a really good job of covering a lot of ground.”
