Coach Nick's Piece of Advice:
To become a true athlete, you must have the passion and drive to achieve all that you want in sports. There will be times when you fall back, but as long as you stay positive and focused you will overcome those hard times and succeed in life. Always remember a true, passionate and hard working athlete never quits. Stay positive and play hard!
