I hope that you all are having an enjoyable and pleasant Sunday. After a tough Saturday for Air Force Football, we can all be thankful for many things despite the losses by both Air Force teams. It is not success or failure, nor victory or defeat which defines our character, but rather how we deal with each which defines our character.
As we continue our mission to develop discipline, integrity, and team work in our young men on the way to becoming servant leaders, we take every opportunity to highlight the importance of not just having those qualities BUT exercising those qualities as well. With each passing week we are seeing more and more evidence and results of having and using discipline, integrity, and team work in both Air Force teams.
We are proud of the character displayed in our young men each practice and each game. One of our fantastic parents sent me a wonderful quote last night that summarizes how we feel about our Falcons;
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not
be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter
the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you
can rise from, how you can still come out of it."
- Maya Angelou
As there are no storm watches in our area nor any dangerous weather conditions pending for north Texas, we are having practice today at First Baptist Church McKinney from 4:30 pm till 6:30 pm in full pads and with an attitude of gratitude for the health and successful growth of the hearts and minds of our young men.
Thank you all for your outstanding support and assistance in helping us train your sons to become tomorrows servant leaders and men with discipline, integrity and honor.
