"I hated every minute of training, but I said, ''Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.''
"Champions aren't made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision."
"We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment."
"If you don’t have confidence, you’ll always find a way not to win."
"Obstacles are those frightening things that become visible when we take our eyes off our goals."
"When they treat you bad, you just got to take care of your pride, no matter what."
"The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand. "
"Never let the fear of striking out get in your way."
"Do not let what you cannot do
interfere with what you can do."
We go out and work hard. We play this game with emotion and love. Coach always says ‘Emotionally, physically, mentally -- come to the field prepared.’ Because if you don’t bring that to the field, you’re going to get beat.
