Man, it feels good to be back. After a rough past couple weeks, being injured and not being able to contribute on the field with the team, it feels better than ever to get back to playing. As I said in my previous segment, the way you perceive the game changes a whole lot when you are sitting out. And after sitting out for a while, I definitely think that the way I played this past week was different than the past. I transferred what I saw when I was on the bench to my personal game and to the team as well.
This week we managed to win all of our games and remain undefeated throughout the whole regular season. While some games were close, a win is a win and that is all that matters. But while going 18-0 is always fun, it doesn’t matter in the big picture. The main goal for our team is to keep winning throughout districts and states. You don’t get a trophy for being undefeated in the regular season, you get one for winning that district and state title. Even though those two games are a little far away, it is always nice to have a goal in mind. But until then, the team and I are going to take it one game at a time.
And that next game is Lower Dauphin. Two state champions, both in the Mid-Penn and playing on our home turf, it can’t get any better than that. It will be a tough game for us both mentally and physically, but I think we have what it takes to get the job done.
Our team is closer than ever, and while the regular season is over, I feel like we are getting better at working as one unit in unison. There is still lots of time for improvement and I have faith to believe that our season will last until November.
