CULTURE is the “talk you walk”. CULTURE needs to be the STAR!
“They say there is no “I” in a team, but I believe there is an “I” in a team because it is about a group of individuals that need to align to form a team. Our players can really be commended for how they stuck together and the sign of their relationship over a short period of time was their defensive effort, they really had to put their bodies on the line together.”
