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.
