Great Quotes:

Become comfortable being uncomfortable.

If it is important enough to you, you will find a way. If it is not, you will find an excuse.

Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

- Theodore Roosevelt

Don't Be Upset by the Results You Didn't Get with the Work You Didn't Do

Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.

- Helen Keller

There is power in people who dream big and who try hard.

Pain is Temporary, Pride is Forever

Success isn't given, it's earned.

Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I can do what others can't.

Thank you to Arrowhead High School and the coaching staff who supports our program in so many ways!
