RU 49 – Leuzinger 0
It was nice to send our seniors out with a win. Credit and respect go to the Leuzinger coaches and players. We are reminded of the “Citizenship in a Republic” speech by Theodore Roosevelt. The notable passage referred to as "The Man in the Arena":
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
The table is set for the toughest challenge of our year vs. Palos Verdes HS. Undefeated in league, beating both West and Mira Costa soundly. It is our time to be the men in the arena, as we spend ourselves for a worthy cause, with great enthusiasm and devotion, to dare greatly for victory!
Thank you to our new buddies that made the week so awesome, and thanks again to our Week #8 Super Sea Hawk Jan Whitson.
Hudl “Top Play” of the game goes to an O-lineman’s dream, Harry Whitson’s TD run.
