”Too much on the line”

I couldn’t let them win.

Not this time.

There was too much on the line.

They weren’t going to win.

”Can you do it?” My coach asked.

I nodded, unable to speak, not sure if I was telling the truth or not.

”Then go out there and show me that you mean it, that we didn’t spend this entire year, training, just to be humiliated.”

I knew he was right.

Too much time, too much money, had been put into this.

I had to win.

There was no other way.

All I had to do was stand up and fight.
