I have spent my life around the principles of preparation and perseverance. These twin truths are essential functions of being a professional athlete. These are the essential functions of being a man,period.

This year we have to make it a goal to prepare ourselves actively for what lies ahead. As men, we are called to lead, protect and provide. That means we do all the active preparation to make this happen. It means reading my Bible regularly, reading leadership books, grabbing leadership opportunities at home, at work and in church. It also means having the discipline to be strong physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
We have work ahead of us. And as what they would always say, it is not how you start the race but how you finish it. Let this be a MAN UP 2015 for us.
Prepare and persevere. One two punch for all of us men!
