How You Win & Lose Matters
This past week our players have won and lost some close games this last week. Importantly, they maintained good character, even amidst difficult environments. One of the things we love most is that Legacy players do NOT talk back to their coaches or act in a disrespectful way. They do not talk back to the refs or give the refs grief or looks. They do not taunt the other team or gloat toward them. They do not curse and act foolish while playing. They are coachable. They work hard. They never quit. They work as a team. They play with discipline and effort. They learn from their mistakes! Great job to our teams this week. It was impressive.
