Best advice you have ever gotten from a Club kid:
“If you were in the NFL, I would have never had the chance to meet you.” – This was at the time he was deciding if he would continue to pursue football or begin his career. He’s very happy with his decision.
What makes the Boys & Girls Club special:
“We provide youth with the tools to craft a better future through sincere mentorship and exceptional opportunities.”
Words to live by:
“To be a GREAT champion, you must BELIEVE you are the best. If you’re not, pretend you ARE.” – Muhammad Ali
