Number 70

It's not always about the cheers, the flash in the pan, the statistics.

It's about the hours of devotion. The cheering, the encouragement, the job well done.

Giving your all.

It's about the game that lives in the heart of the player.

There he is. Number 70. Took down some men on his own for his team. Cheering them on, an equal part of the team even when he's not tackling.

He earned it. I am so proud of him.

What the rest of the world doesn't see...

is the heart of this older brother, does the same

for this one.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
