On my way up to Notre Dame for Men’s Boxing Banquet.
40 years of coaching … yet each year’s celebration of the season is especially meaningful.
Put together a poster for the boxers; and Nick suggested that I share it with the Tribe. A lot of great quotes, including:
“Strong bodies fight so that weak bodies may be nourished.” — Founder and My Mentor Nappy
“First with the head … then with the heart.” — Hoppe to Peekay in the Power of One
“The fight is won or lost, far away from witnesses. It is won behind the lines, in the gym and out there on the road, long before I dance under the lights.” — Muhammad Ali
“SO DO IT. If you win, you win. If you lose, you win.” — De Niro in Raging Bull
You might want to print the poster out and share it with a young athlete.
