To any kids that may visit this site:

I hope that you have all set academic goals for yourself, as well as athletic ones for the school year.
 
I hope that your goals include MAKING THE HONOR ROLL and BEING GOOD SCHOOL CITIZENS.

Be a positive leader for those around you and do not allow negative people or things to hold you back.
 
STAY FOCUSED and GIVE YOUR BEST EFFORT AT ALL TIMES!

The single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of ATTITUDE.

It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position.

Attitude is that "single string" that keeps me going or cripples my progress.

It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope.

When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.

 

I WANT TO THANK GOD FOR MY ALL-STAR TEAM IN LIFE AND FOR LIFE, 

MY KIDS

WITHOUT THEIR LOVE & SUPPORT.....I DON'T KNOW WHERE I'D BE OR WHAT I'D DO!!
THANKS FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!!!!!!
1) Why is it so hard for so many to realize that succesful people are usually the ones who work harder, work longer, and as a result, perform better?

2) Why are there so many who want to build up the weak by tearing down the strong?

3) Why is it that so many people who do not reach their goals are quick to criticize, question, and belittle those that do reach their goals?

4) Why is it so hard for us to understand that we cannot antagonize and positively influence at the same time?

5) Why is it so much easier to complain about the things we do not have than to make the most of and appreciate the things we do have?


"Try your hardest in all ways and you are a success.  Period.  Do less than that and you have failed to one degree or another."
