“Clear eyes, full heart, can’t lose.”

Hey Coach

 

Just a few steps into my race I thought about Coach Taylor’s pre-game talk to his new team, the East Dillon Lions. “Clear eyes, full heart gentlemen.” Good old Landry answers “can’t lose.” Coach Taylor, like all the great coaches down through the ages is preaching: “clear eyes, full hearts gentleman.” Landry answers again, “can’t lose.” 

With his team decimated, Coach forfeited the game at half-time. It was a shocking move but it had to be done. His first responsibility was to protect his team, and he did not shirk.

  1. Coach will get a lot of flack for that move…this season is filled with twists and turns. In the end though, Coach always prevails.

  2. Are you a professional journalist? You write very well.

    • Now, that is a compliment — thanks! No, I’m not. I did major in English and Grad school as well back in the olden days. I just got back from vacation in France and will resume blogging tomorrow. Thanks for reading.
