to be persistent
refuse to stop
to persist steadfastly in pursuit of an undertaking, task, journey or mission in spite of distraction, difficulty, obstacles or discouragement These are all descriptions of this young man – Brian had never played football. PERIOD. But his commitment to one of our local middle school’s football team is something to be proud of. He didn’t miss ONE practice, attended every game, and even convinced his Dad to practice with him on nights he didn’t have official practice. Brian did whatever was asked of him. This included moving equipment, being the team’s “water boy” and even sitting on the sidelines game after game after game. BUT…he never gave up or got frustrated; he persevered knowing he was one of those “boys of Fall”. This would be a time in his life he would never forget.
During the very last few games Brian wasn’t asked to move equipment, be the “water boy” or even sit on the bench….he was asked to PLAY for just a small segment and….he did just that!
Brian as your friends, we are very proud of you and your commitment. You are well beyond your years in many ways and we are very blessed to not only know you but see you frequently. Many children your age wouldn’t have persevered – we are glad you did! Be proud!
