    Wow! Reading this really opened mu eyes. You never let anything stop you, and you worked really hard no matter what. I wish I could have done better this season. This is motivation right here. I love your story. As we play our last game today (and mine) I will be thinking about not stopping and giving it my all.

    I just want to say that reading your article and seeing all of your inspirational quotes really motivated me. I too play basketball and I have been told by my dad, coaches, and friends that it might not be in my future. I love the game though. I thought about maybe giving it up, but reading this gives me more motivation to push on and prove all the nay-sayers wrong!
