When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan, but Adam was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote “I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this Earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me.”
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, Julius Caesar
The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
NELSON MANDELA, Autobiography
Fear is paralyzing. Fear keeps you from reacting the way you should react in life or on the field. The Shakespeare quote if applied to doing away with fear in general, simply means that if you are living or playing in fear, then you are really never living or playing. Fear has already stalled you. As an Arkadelphia football player, we want to play passionately and relentlessly free from fear. Practice with reckless abandon, free of fear and play that way in our football games. If you do this, we can be BETTER THAN EVER!
HAVE ANOTHER EXCELLENT PRACTICE TODAY. YOU ARE AN ARKADELPHIA FOOTBALL PLAYER, BE FEARLESS!
